The objective of the audit was to verify that Statoil's management and follow-up of technical, organisational and operational barriers complied with the company's and the authorities' requirements. We also wanted to assess the prioritisation, planning and execution of activities and the implementation of risk-reducing measures.


Two non-conformities were identified in connection with:

  • Technical operating documents
  • Routines for replacing wire rope

In addition, we identified six improvement points in connection with:

  • Arrangements for employee participation
  • Implementation of measures in the working environment area
  • Maintenance programme and training
  • Condition assessment of deck gratings in gangways
  • Consequences of Worst Credible Process Fire
  • Resources relative to planned activities

Statoil has been given a deadline of 27 October 2017 to report on how the non-conformities and improvement points will be addressed.
