Audit of management of emergency preparedness and structural safety at Statfjord A

From 26 October to 4 November 2015, the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway carried out an audit of Statoil's management of emergency preparedness and structural safety at Statfjord A.


The objective of the audit was to evaluate Statoil's management of emergency preparedness and structural safety at Statfjord A. The audit focused on Statoil's activities for ensuring that assumptions, prerequisites, limitations and recommendations in the emergency preparedness analysis for Statfjord A are catered for, and that they are communicated out to the emergency preparedness organisation.

Within structural safety, the objective of the audit was to verify Statoil's own requirements for, and application of, standards relating to criteria for choosing design values for collisions, and also Statoil's assessment of these values based on new knowledge, and whether this has consequences for the requirements placed on visiting vessels.

Result
No non-conformities were identified.

Three improvement points were identified in connection with

  • Module training
  • MOB boat performance requirements
  • Calculation of accidental loads

Statoil has been given a deadline of 22 January 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.
