Major accident audit – Kårstø

On 22 and 23 November 2017, we carried out a major accident audit of the Kårstø facility.


Objective
The objective of the audit was to confirm that Gassco, with Statoil as the technical service provider (TSP), is fulfilling the requirements in the regulations and its own procedures in respect of reducing the likelihood of a major accident.

The primary emphasis was on:

  • monitoring and verifying the measures implemented following last year's major accident audit
  • the system for maintenance, focusing on classification and categorisation, including how the processes are managed and how the organisation as a whole is engaged in this work
  • the incorporation of new requirements in the major accident regulations

Result
No non-conformities were identified.

Two improvement points were identified in connection with:

  • Electrical facilities
  • Emergency lighting

Gassco has been given a deadline of 31 January 2018 to report on how the improvement points will be addressed.
