OHAS on Leiv Eiriksson needs work

The Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) Norway has carried out an audit of groups at particular risk and emergency preparedness on Leiv Eiriksson semi-submersible drilling rig. 

From 10 to 13 November 2014, the PSA carried out an audit of the efforts of Ocean Rig and RWE Dea to identify and follow up groups at potentially particular risk and emergency preparedness on the Leiv Eiriksson semi-submersible mobile drilling rig.

RWE Dea is the operator of production licence PL420 in block 35/9 in the northern North Sea. RWE Dea has a contract with Ocean Rig to use Leiv Eiriksson to drill an exploration well in a prospect named Atlas.

The PSa says that the purpose of the audit was to verify that Ocean Rig had established a systematic management system for occupational health and safety and emergency preparedness, and that, as the operator, RWE Dea had followed up its obligations to ensure that Ocean Rig complies with the regulatory requirements in these areas.

The audit revealed non-conformities relating to: Management system for OHAS (occupational health and safety) and emergency preparedness; Roles and clarification of responsibilities in respect of OHAS on the rig; Competence and communication in the OHAS domain; Information on emergency preparedness analyses and knowledge of performance requirements; Assessments in the emergency preparedness analysis; The certificates for the MOB boat and davits; Employee participation; The principal’s supervisory responsibility.

Improvement points were identified relating to: Training and drills; Securing of loose equipment and inventory; Internal verifications.
