ConocoPhillips is designing and building a new wellhead platform on Ekofisk. The audit was part of the PSA’s follow-up of the project.
The objective was to verify that the engineering is taking place in accordance with regulatory provisions, recognised norms, the operator’s own requirements and that the different players contribute to sound and appropriate solutions. Furthermore, the objective of the activity was to investigate whether the different players understand the regulatory requirements for preparedness and whether they have established appropriate management systems for follow-up.
An important part of the audit was also to verify that ConocoPhillips has facilitated good processes for employee involvement and input from the operations organisation.
It is our impression that ConocoPhillips and Aker Solutions have established and implemented good systems for management of the project and that the project organisation is staffed with experienced personnel with good knowledge regarding Norwegian regulations and standards.
At this stage in the project no nonconformities or improvement items have been identified.
