Audit of risk management, technical safety and safety instrumented systems on Skarv FPSO

From 1 to 15 September 2015, the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway carried out an audit of the Skarv FPSO production vessel.

Non-conformities were identified in connection with:

  • Documentation
  • Fire water in the event of gas detection
  • Man-machine interfaces

In addition, improvement points were identified in connection with

  • Continuous improvement
  • Risk matrixes
  • Maintenance management
  • Control room manning
  • Risk reduction

BP has been given a deadline of 15 december 2015 to report on how the non-conformities and improvement points will be dealt with.
