Audit of Total E&P Norge AS – Martin Linge PU

On 23 and 24 September 2015, the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway carried out an audit of Total E&P Norge AS (Total) and the Martin Linge production unit (PU) project.


The Martin Linge development consists of a fixed production unit and an FSO for the storage and shipment of oil.

The purpose of the audit was to monitor that the design solution for the Martin Linge PU accords with the preconditions in the plan for development and operation (PDO), with the regulations and with relevant standards within the disciplines of technical safety and process safety.

Result
One non-conformity was identified in connection with automatic triggering of deluge valves in the event of gas detection.

In addition, two improvement points were identified in connection with:

  • Fire class designation
  • Emergency shutdown and process safety

Total has been given a deadline of 1 December 2015 to report on how the non-conformities and improvement points will be dealt with.

Avvik:
Innebærer at et forhold er vurdert ikke å være i samsvar med krav i regelverket.

Forbedringspunkt:
Innebærer at vi har påvist en mangel eller svakhet, men hvor det ikke er tilstrekkelig grunnlag for å fastslå brudd på regelverkskrav.
