The objective was to verify that Equinor’s management and follow-up of the project within the domains of technical safety, process safety and electrical facilities comply with the company’s own and the authorities’ requirements, so as to reduce the likelihood of failures.


A non-conformity was identified concerning inadequate preservation.

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

  • Lack of permanently installed facilities for firefighting
  • Improved monitoring that risk acceptance criteria for personnel work as intended

What happens next?

Equinor has been given a deadline of 20 November 2019 to report on how the non-conformity and improvement points will be addressed.
