Safety probe finds improvement points on Heimdal

Norwegian offshore safety watchdog, the Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA), has identified several improvement points during an audit of Statoil and Gassco. No non-conformities were found.

PSA said on Thursday that the audit was conducted on June 9 and 10 and that the revealed improvement points were related to the condition of the main support structures at Heimdal offshore gas field.

The organization added that the objective of the audit was to see how Statoil and Gassco maintain the integrity of the main support structures of an operational facility.

No non-conformities were identified during the audit while the improvement points found regarded document archiving and correlations between analyses and load-bearing structures and maritime systems. The improvement points identified were linked to the scope of inspection for both Heimdal A and Heimdal B.

Heimdal is a gas field in block 25/4 in the North Sea, offshore Norway. It is located 250 km west of Rogaland. Heimdal was discovered in 1972. Development was approved in 1981, and production started in 1986.
