This audit was based on incidents occurring with flexible risers, and on the fact that these types of incident have proven to be key contributors to major accident risk. The PSA therefore wishes to follow up industry participants in order to verify that they are focused on finding solutions to the challenges and ensuring sound operating conditions for the risers.
The audit was conducted in the form of a technical meeting at Statoil's offices in Stjørdal on 16 October 2014.
No verifications were carried out and the result of the audit therefore consisted of a review of thematic elements based on the questions raised in the PSA's notice of audit. Based on the information that emerged and the technical discussions in the meeting, the PSA identified a number of action points requiring further work and which it may be appropriate for the PSA to follow up.
