Audit of major accident risk, barrier management, own registration and follow-up of incidents at Slagentangen.

From 7-8 June 2011, the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) carried out three audit activities at Slagentangen.


Background
The audit activity was carried out based on the Regulations relating to health, safety and the environment in the petroleum activities and at certain onshore facilities, the Regulations relating to management and the duty to provide information in the petroleum activities and at certain onshore facilities, the Regulations relating to technical and operational matters at onshore facilities in the petroleum activities, etc. and the Regulations relating to measures to prevent and limit consequences of major accidents in activities where hazardous chemicals are used.

The activities were connected to the PSA’s main priorities relating to major accidents and technical and operational barriers.

Objective
The objective of the audit was to:

  • Verify compliance with applicable regulations in areas that impact major accident risk
  • Check to ensure that certain safety-critical barriers are safeguarded in a comprehensive and consistent manner so risk of major accidents is reduced as much as possible
  • Verify the company’s control of incidents, registration, follow-up and how corrective measures are handled 

Results
No nonconformities or improvement items were identified during the activity.

Systematic work is taking place to examine whether own and regulatory requirements are complied with.

Slagentangen follows an internal guideline which includes consideration of the potential when assessing which incidents should be reported to the PSA.
