Clarification – fire water supply

The PSA has sent a circular letter to the industry containing a clarification of the capacity requirement for fire water supply for permanently manned facilities.


Over time, the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) has experienced that players in the petroleum industry have had questions relating to the capacity requirement for fire water supply for permanently manned facilities, as this emerges in Section 36 of the Facilities Regulations relating to fire water supply.

On this basis, we are now issuing a clarification of the capacity requirement, including a description of the background and basis for the requirement.

The clarification does not entail intensification in relation to previous requirements.
