Audit of North Atlantic Drilling – West Linus

From 19 to 25 May 2016, the PSA carried out an audit of capacity and competence within drilling, and the arrangements for employee participation at West Linus.


The objective of the audit was to verify how the drilling contractor ensures and monitors that the company has adequate capacity and competence within drilling following major changes in the workforce composition. The PSA also wanted to see how North Atlantic Drilling (NAD) arranges for employee participation through participation in the working environment committee and the safety service on board.

Result
One non-conformity was identified in connection with functional testing.

In addition, six improvement points were identified linked to training and competence, mapping, verification, documentation, classification and drilling schedules.

NAD has been given a deadline of 19 August 2016 to report on how the non-conformity and 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.
