PSA sees flaws in Statoil’s Sleipner ops (Norway)

The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) has carried out an audit of Statoil’s administration of emergency preparedness, materials handling and lifting equipment maintenance at Sleipner platform, in the Norwegian North Sea.

According to the PSA, the objective of the audit carried out from August 11 – 13, 2015, was to evaluate management’s administration of emergency preparedness, materials handling and lifting equipment maintenance at Sleipner, as well as to verify that Statoil is taking due account of the prerequisites, restrictions and recommendations in the emergency preparedness analysis for Sleipner, and that they are communicated out to the emergency preparedness organisation.

As a result, the PSA identified non-conformities in connection with continuous improvement and learning following incidents, maintenance of offshore cranes, maintenance programmes, thermal effects on offshore cranes, ignition source control for offshore cranes, maintenance of wire rope, competence, capacity, and training of emergency preparedness personnel.

In addition the PSA said it had identified improvement points in connection with technical condition of offshore cranes, bumpers, planning of lifting operations, and siting of MOB boat.

The PSA has given Statoil a deadline of September 26, 2015, to report on how the non-conformities and improvement points will be dealt with.
