Audit of technical safety at Slagentangen

From 6 to 8 October 2015, the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) carried out an audit of technical safety at the refinery at Slagentangen.


The objective of the audit was to verify that Esso is complying with the regulations and its own procedures in terms of reducing the likelihood of a major accident and to monitor technical safety at the plant.

In particular, we investigated the work processes for risk reduction, continuous improvement and the systems approach to recording and following up on non-conformities.

Result
One non-conformity was identified in connection with ignition source control of temporary equipment.

In addition, an improvement point was identified in connection with change implementation.

Non-conformity:
Entails that a condition is assessed as not complying with a regulatory requirement.

Improvement point:
Entails that we have identified a deficiency or weakness, without there being sufficient grounds for determining a breach of regulatory requirements.
