Emergency preparedness probe finds flaws on Statoil’s Troll C

Norway’s offshore safety watchdog, the Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA), has found nine non-conformities at Statoil’s Troll C platform off Norway during a probe into emergency preparedness management, logistics, and employee participation. 

The Troll field is located in the northern part of the Norwegian North Sea.

During the audit, the PSA found non-conformities related to emergency preparedness analyses, a system for training the emergency preparedness organization offshore, safety in MOB operations, and helicopter deck.

The other five irregularities regard follow-up of non-conformities in logistics, safety marking and user manuals for lifting equipment, follow-up and maintenance of lifting equipment, user instruction and training in cranes and lifting, and safety service.

The PSA said that the audit was conducted from March 21-24, 2017. It was focused particularly on how risk is assessed both individually and in combination in advance of decisions, and on how the measures adopted safeguard requirements for emergency preparedness, logistics, and the working environment in both the short and long terms.

Apart from the non-conformities, the safety body identified improvement points regarding signage and marking, maintenance of emergency preparedness equipment, emergency preparedness manning, competence and documentation, lifeboats, coordinating the working environment committee for the Troll field, Troll C working environment committee, and follow-up of chemicals and exposure conditions.

The PSA told Statoil to report on how the non-conformities would be addressed and how the improvement points would be assessed by May 22, 2017, at the latest.

Statoil is the operator of the Troll A, B and C platforms. Troll C is a floating process and accommodation platform with a steel hull.
