The objective of the audit was to monitor the status of Statoil's own follow-up for safeguarding semi-submersible production facilities and TLPs against waves on deck. We wanted to gain an insight into Statoil's routines and criteria where measures are required for safeguarding the facilities in high sea states.
Desired outcomes were that Statoil was aware of the issue of airgaps, that we gained an insight into whether necessary measures have been implemented, and that the facilities are robust in withstanding wave impact events.
No non-conformities were identified.
One improvement point was identified concerning measures for damage limitation and the prevention of hazard situations.
Statoil has been given a deadline of 11 January 2018 to report on how the improvement point will be addressed.
