Audit of major accident risk, the company’s own follow-up and operation of onshore facilities, pipelines and subsea facilities at Hammerfest LNG.

From 20-23 September 2011, the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) carried out an audit activity of Hammerfest LNG, Statoil, where we followed up major accident risk, the company’s own follow-up and operation of onshore facilities, pipelines and subsea facilities.


Objective
The objective of the audit was:

  • To ensure Statoil safeguards the requirements in the Regulations relating to major accidents.
  • To examine and follow-up how the company inspects own activity
  • Follow-up operation of pipelines and subsea facilities as an integrated part of the onshore facility on Melkøya

Results
The PSA has identified one nonconformity from the regulations connected to the company’s own follow-up.

Furthermore, three improvement items were identified within the following areas:

  • Training and expertise
  • Venting of CO2 in the process facility
  • System for corrosion monitoring
