Room for improvement found during waves on deck audit on Statoil’s platforms

The Norwegian offshore safety body, the Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA), has found an improvement point during an audit of waves on deck on Statoil’s eight facilities off Norway.

The PSA said on Thursday that the audit looked at semi-submersible facilities at Kristin, Åsgard B, Troll B, Troll C, Visund, and Snorre B, as well as the Heidrun and Snorre A tension leg platforms.

According to the safety body, the objective of the audit was to monitor the status of Statoil’s follow-up for safeguarding semi-submersible production facilities and TLPs against waves on deck.

The PSA wanted to gain an insight into Statoil’s routines and criteria where measures were required for safeguarding the facilities in high sea states.

“Desired outcomes were that Statoil was aware of the issue of airgaps, that we gained an insight into whether necessary measures have been implemented, and that the facilities are robust in withstanding wave impact events,” PSA said.

The safety body found one improvement point concerning measures for damage limitation and the prevention of hazard situations. No non-conformities were identified during the audit.

The PSA told Statoil to report on how the improvement point will be addressed by January 11, 2018.
