Audit of Valhall PH – emergency preparedness and helicopter deck

On 5 January 2011, the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) and the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) conducted an audit of Valhall PH directed towards emergency preparedness management and helicopter deck operations.


The audit was a supplement to the previous technical audit of Valhall PH, and included emergency preparedness analyses, emergency preparedness plans and organisation, as well as a review of CAA report 2010F505.

Background
In 2010, the PSA and CAA carried out audits of the living quarters module, process module and helicopter deck at the shipyards.

At the time the governing documentation was not complete, and the CAA identified a few remaining items in connection with helicopter operations.

Objective
The objective of the audit was to verify that Valhall PH manages its activity in accordance with the regulations. This includes e.g. analyses, plans, organisation and procedures.

Result
Based on the audit, Valhall PH shows good solutions and the general impression is of a robust emergency preparedness management based on best practice on the Valhall field. We did not identify any nonconformities or improvement items during the audit.
