Consent for removal of standby vessel

The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) has granted Statoil ASA its consent to remove the standby vessel which is dedicated to Huldra-Veslefrikk (HVF).

HVF is located in the Troll/Oseberg area and forms a part of the area emergency preparedness concept that was introduced in 2002. Because the man-overboard preparedness was not based on two independent systems, HVF has retained its standby vessel until now.

The conventional lifeboats on the main mustering station will now be replaced by free-fall lifeboats, and the lifeboats on Veslefrikk A will be upgraded so that they can be taken onboard the new area standby vessel.

The PSA's consent to remove the said standby vessel at HVF applies from the time when free-fall lifeboats are in place on the installation.
