Audit of Equinor - Heidrun

From 17 to 21 September 2018, we carried out an audit of the process facility and transport system at Heidrun.

The background to the audit consisted of previous follow-up activities concerning Equinor linked to flexible risers, and follow-up of observations following an interdisciplinary audit in 2017, notably within technical safety and processing.

The objective of the audit was to follow up integrity and barrier management of flexible risers and the process facility and associated safety systems.

Two non-conformities were identified relating to:

  • Process shutdown (PSD) functions
  • Performance requirements for PSD functions

Improvement points were identified in connection with:

  • Maintenance programme for flexible jumpers
  • Overview of containment barriers
  • Follow-up of technical condition
  • Passive fire protection of equipment

Equinor has been given a deadline of 10 December 2018 to report on how the non-conformities will be addressed. We have also requested the company’s assessment of the improvement points observed.
