Nyhamna - Investigation following incidents involving falling objects

The PSA has completed its investigation into Norske Shell and contractors' own follow-up of incidents involving falling objects at Nyhamna in 2015. No non-confirmities with the regulations were identified in connection with our investigation.


Based on the many incidents of falling objects reported to the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway in 2015, it was decided to undertake an investigation of the follow-up of these by A/S Norske Shell and the contractors.

Our investigation emphasised the companies' own follow-up of the incidents in relation to established governing documents in the project.

Result
No non-conformities with the regulations were identified in connection with our investigation. We did however detect some improvement points. These relate primarily to deficient requirements in the governing documents.

In the main, the impression is that Shell and its contractors have performed good investigations of the individual incidents. Based on the identified findings, appropriate measures have been implemented.
