Audit of Statoil – Heidrun

From 22 May to 9 June 2017, we carried out an audit of Statoil's handling of major accident and working environment risk at Heidrun.

The objective of the audit was to verify that Statoil's management and follow-up of technical, organisational and operational barriers complied with the company's and the authorities' requirements. We also wanted to assess the prioritisation, planning and execution of activities and the implementation of risk-reducing measures.

Two non-conformities were identified in connection with:

  • Technical operating documents
  • Routines for replacing wire rope

In addition, we identified six improvement points in connection with:

  • Arrangements for employee participation
  • Implementation of measures in the working environment area
  • Maintenance programme and training
  • Condition assessment of deck gratings in gangways
  • Consequences of Worst Credible Process Fire
  • Resources relative to planned activities

Statoil has been given a deadline of 27 October 2017 to report on how the non-conformities and improvement points will be addressed.
