Audit of Goliat design

During the period 6-9 March 2012, the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) conducted an audit of how Eni Norge AS (Eni) manages and ensures safeguarding of material handling and working environment requirements in the Goliat project.

The audit activity was conducted at the Hyundai Heavy Industries yard in Ulsan, South Korea, where the Goliat facility is currently being built. This audit activity was a continuation of the audit carried out in May 2011 targeting working environment, material handling and preparedness.

The purpose of the audit activity was to verify design status in relation to relevant regulatory requirements in the material handling and working environment areas.

The audit activity covered the following:

  • That the project has secured sufficient capacity and competence within material handling and working environment to follow up the design in the construction phase.
  • That the project has established and implemented the management systems and tools necessary to follow up and ensure compliance with the requirements for facilitation of material handling and working environment. This includes e.g. studies and analyses that have been carried out, systems and procedures for change control, queries, nonconformity processes, handling interfaces, design control and handling of findings.

Nonconformities in relation to the regulations were identified as regards

  • overview and registration of nonconformities
  • emergency lighting requirements
  • the yard’s working environment program
  • preparation of the working environment program
  • drawing up procedures and work instructions for use in the construction phase
  • facilitation of safe load handling on the loading decks
  • noise follow-up in the design and engineering phase

An improvement item also emerged in relation to completion of the basic drawing/3D model at the start-up of the construction work.
