The objective of the audit was to verify that Statoil's management and follow-up of the project within the domains of materials handling, working environment, emergency preparedness, electrical systems, maintenance management and technical safety comply with the company's and the authorities' requirements, so as to reduce the likelihood of failures and hazardous working environment exposure.

  • Materials handling using offshore cranes
  • Work in and operation of electrical facilities
  • Composite gratings in evacuation routes

In addition, two improvement points were identified in connection with:
