The detail engineering of the structures on the Gudrun deck is now near completion. The audit was carried out near a milestone in the project to ensure sufficient documentation is available during the start-up of fabrication.
The objective of the audit was to ensure the engineering of the load-bearing structures takes place in accordance with applicable regulations. With a random sample basis, we reviewed documentation associated with the engineering with emphasis on the exhaustion analyses, determination of weight and centre of gravity, as well as Statoil’s verifications and audit activity.
The structure analyses are large and complicated. In such analyses very much must be done correctly or conservatively.
No breaches of regulatory requirements were identified. However, we have some suggestions for improvement items in relation to completing verifications, and documentation of analyses and analysis tools.
