Audit of project follow-up of Johan Sverdrup

On 3 and 4 March 2016, the PSA carried out an audit of Statoil's management of the Johan Sverdrup project.

The objective was to verify that the company's plans and decisions, in the phase between design and fabrication, ensure that work processes and solutions are utilised in the company's improvement work. And also to audit the company's sharing of experiences and realisation of HSE benefits.

No non-conformities were identified.

An improvement point was identified in connection with electrical plant.         

Johan Sverdrup is located on the Utsira High in the North Sea, 140 kilometres west of Stavanger. The field will be developed in several phases. The first phase will consist of a field centre, comprising processing, drilling, riser and accommodation facilities. The facilities have steel jackets, are linked by bridges and stand in water approximately 120 metres deep. Production start is estimated for the end of 2019 and the field has a production horizon of 2050.

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