Offshore safety body spots irregularities during Edvard Grieg audit

Norway’s offshore safety watchdog, the Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA), has found three non-conformities along with six improvement points during an audit of Lundin’s Edvard Grieg field offshore Norway.

The PSA said on Monday that the audit was conducted from April 27 to May 4. The aim was to verify that Lundin’s management of working environment risk and arrangements for employee participation on the Edvard Grieg field met regulatory requirements.

The non-conformities found during the audit were related to health risks from benzene exposure, manning of the central control room, and discussion of and information about control measures.

The identified improvement points concerned chemical exposure, noise exposure, the risk of developing musculo-skeletal disorders for maintenance personnel, the involvement of safety representatives, governing documents, and manning in the event of sickness absences.

The safety body told Lundin to report on how the non-conformities would be dealt with, and for an assessment of the improvement points identified.

The field is located in the central sector of the North Sea, 35 kilometers south of Grane and Balder, and has been developed using a fixed facility with a steel jacket and a full processing installation. There is also a separate jack-up rig for drilling and completing wells. Production from the field began back in 2015.

Lundin Norway is the operator with an ownership interest of 65 percent. Other licensees are OMV with 20 percent, and Wintershall Norge with 15 percent.
