The audit was conducted on 30 August and 1 September 2020.


The objective of the audit was to monitor that integrity and barrier management at Kristin, including flexible risers, piping, valves and selected safety systems, complies with the regulations and company’s internal requirements. 


Three non-conformities were identified, relating to:

  • Non-conformity handling
  • Incident reporting
  • Risers

Two improvement points were also identified in connection with:

  • Maintenance management
  • Follow-up

What happens next?

We have asked Equinor to report on how the non-conformities will be addressed. We have also asked for the company's assessment of the observations we have categorized as improvement points. The reply deadline is set at 1 December 2020.
