PSA Norway audits emergency preparedness at Statoil’s Veslefrikk

The Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) Norway has carried out an audit of Statoil’s management of emergency preparedness at Veslefrikk.

The PSA carried out an audit of Statoil’s management of emergency preparedness at Veslefrikk A and B from 25-28 August 2014.

The objective of the audit was to gain an overview of the operating company’s processes and systems that contribute to ensuring comprehensive emergency preparedness management on the facilities at Veslefrikk.

The audit was focused on processes for ensuring that assumptions, prerequisites, limitations and recommendations in the emergency preparedness for Veslefrikk are catered for, and that they are communicated to the emergency preparedness organisation.

The audit identified non-conformities in respect of regulatory requirements relating to emergency preparedness performance requirements.

Improvement points were detected relating to:

– Co-training of personnel in the emergency preparedness organisation;

– Communications equipment for search and rescue teams;

– Safety signage and labelling.

Veslefrikk lies in Norwegian North Sea block 30/3. The field came on stream in 1989 as the first development off Norway to use a floating production unit. Designated Veslefrikk B, this semi-submersible structure is tied to a fixed steel wellhead platform – Veslefrikk A.
