The incident occurred while raising a riser on the facility, where Point Resources AS is the operator. Understood to have come loose from the lifting arrangement, the riser – which weighs up to 15 tonnes – fell eight metres. Nobody was injured.
An investigation team from the PSA is due to start work on Jotun B this week. Its goals include clarifying the course of events and identifying the direct and underlying causes in order to contribute to learning and experience transfer.
The investigation will result in a report published on psa.no.
