The objective of the audit was to monitor regulatory compliance concerning barriers and to verify that technical, operational and organisational barrier elements have been maintained in an integrated and consistent manner in order to minimise the risk of major accidents to the greatest extent possible. The residual risk must be properly handled through well-planned emergency preparedness and a robust emergency preparedness organisation.


Two non-conformities were identified in connection with barrier strategies and the training of emergency responders.

In addition, four improvement points were identified, relating to competence, performance-influencing factors in the central control room, maintenance management and flanges on the turbines' gas pipe.

Teekay has been given a deadline of 31 August 2016 to report on how the non-conformities and improvement points will be dealt with.
