Report following audit of management of emergency preparedness at Snorre B

From 11 to 24 September 2014, the PSA carried out an audit of Statoil Petroleum AS (Statoil) focused on the company's management of emergency preparedness on the Snorre B facility.

The objective of the audit was to gain an overview of the processes and systems that contribute to ensuring comprehensive emergency preparedness management at Snorre B. The audit focused on processes for ensuring that assumptions, prerequisites, limitations and recommendations in the emergency preparedness for Snorre B are catered for, and that they are communicated out to the emergency preparedness organisation.

The audit covered the following topics:

  • Risk analysis, including prerequisites and assumptions
  • Emergency preparedness analysis
  • Measurement/verification/assessment of facility-specific performance requirements
  • Continuous improvement
  • Organisation of emergency preparedness on board
  • Training and drills
  • Administration and management of emergency preparedness on board

The main impression is that emergency preparedness on Snorre B is adequately provided for. The emergency preparedness organisation appeared to be robust.

One non-conformity was identified in connection with the training of response teams. In addition, improvement points were identified in relation to unannounced drills, co-training of personnel in the emergency preparedness organisation, siting of firefighting equipment and siting of equipment cabinets for helicopter deck teams.
