Audit of maintenance of safety-critical equipment at Slagentangen

From 9 to 11 February 2016, the PSA conducted a major accident inspection and audit of safety-critical equipment maintenance at Slagentangen.


The objective of the audit was to monitor that Esso Norge AS (Esso) is meeting the requirements in the regulations and in its own procedures. We looked in particular at the company's work on explosion protection, system for maintenance management, impact assessments of backlogs and outstanding maintenance, and barrier management.

Result
No non-conformities were identified.

Three improvement points were identified in connection with:

  • Overall summary of risks

  • Overall status of and follow-up of maintenance

Esso has been given a deadline of 22 April 2016 to report on how the improvement points will be dealt with.

Non-conformity:
Entails that a condition is assessed as not complying with a regulatory requirement.

Improvement point:
Entails that we have identified a deficiency or weakness, without there being sufficient grounds for determining a breach of regulatory requirements.
