Petrojarl 1 & Petrojarl Varg

The Petrojarl 1 carries out activities for StatoilHydro on the Glitne field and the Petrojarl Varg carries out activities for Talisman on the Varg field. Both facilities are registered in a national ship's register and Teekay has applied for (AoCs) for the facilities.

Purpose of the audit
The purpose of the audit was to verify that technical and operational factors within the emergency preparedness discipline on board the Petrojarl 1 are in compliance with regulatory requirements.
