Audit of Statoil - Johan Sverdrup

On 16 and 17 January 2018, we carried out an audit of Statoil's work to ensure compliance with the regulatory requirements for barrier management and robust operations on the drilling platform (DP) and riser platform (RP) of Johan Sverdrup.

Johan Sverdrup is an oil and gas field under development on the Utsira High in the North Sea, around 160 kilometres west of Stavanger. Water depth in the area is 110 to 120 metres.

Statoil is the field's operator. Production is scheduled to start in late 2019.

The objective of the audit was to monitor Statoil's management and follow-up of: 

• robust operation of the drilling and well systems and the electrical facilities on board

The audit identified one non-compliance in the following area:

We found two improvement points in the following areas:
