The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) has been delegated supervisory responsibility for three planned gas power plants

The Ministry of Labour and Social Inclusion has decided to expand the PSA's sphere of responsibility to include three planned gas power plants at Skogn, Hammerfest and Grenland, with associated gas pipelines.


Since it was established on 1 January 2004, the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway has had supervisory responsibility for certain land facilities involved in the petroleum activities.

This responsibility includes supervision of the planned gas power plants at Kollsnes, Kårstø, Melkøya, Sture, Slagentangen, Tjeldbergodden and Mongstad.

To ensure uniform follow-up, the Ministry finds it appropriate to delegate the supervisory responsibility for all gas power plants in Norway to a single supervisory body in the field of safety and working environment.

Therefore, the Ministry has decided that the PSA will be the supervisory authority also for the three planned gas power plants that fall outside of the land facilities that the PSA already supervises.
