Audit of the detail engineering of the jacket for Johan Sverdrup RP

On 17 and 18 November 2015, the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) carried out an audit of Statoil's follow-up of the detail engineering of the RP jacket for Johan Sverdrup.

Statoil's development of the Johan Sverdrup field has been approved. Phase 1 consists of four jackets. The RP jacket weighs approx. 27,000 tonnes, and is the largest jacket designed by Kværner. The audit was performed during the final phase of engineering at Kværner, and fabrication at Verdal has now started.

No non-conformities were detected during this audit.

Four improvement points were identified in connection with:

  • Monitoring of analyses
  • Learning and continuous improvement
  • Competence
  • Non-conformity handling

Statoil has been given a deadline of 4 January 2016 to report on how the improvement points will be dealt with. 

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.
