Audit of Johan Sverdrup export pipelines

The PSA has carried out an audit of the export pipelines at Johan Sverdrup.


Statoil is the operator of the Johan Sverdrup field in the North Sea, around 155 kilometres west of Karmøy in Rogaland county. The field is under development and production is planned to start in late 2019.

The oil from the field will be piped to Mongstad in Hordaland. The gas will be transported through a pipeline linked to the Statpipe system, and then onwards to the processing facility at Kårstø in Rogaland.

From 7 to 15 December 2016, the PSA carried out an audit of Statoil and the installation concept for the two pipelines from Johan Sverdrup. The audit was conducted as a meeting at Statoil's premises at Forus, followed by an audit at Saipem, which is responsible for performing the pipeline installation.

No non-conformities were detected during this audit.

However, improvement points were identified relating to the updating of governing documents and the plan for performing verifications.

Statoil has been given a deadline of 15 February 2017 to report on how the improvement points will be assessed.
