The audit was conducted from 27 May to 4 June 2020.


An audit of Equinor Mongstad in 2019 identified two non-conformities relating to a deficient strategy for maintenance management and a lack of maintenance planning. The same audit also identified improvement points relating to better follow-up of maintenance programmes, classification of equipment and the assignment of maintenance concepts.


To monitor that the maintenance of management, including the follow-up of maintenance and any ongoing changes of significance for this management, comply with the authorities’ and Equinor’s own requirements. In addition, to verify that efforts to improve the management of maintenance are ensuring that important contributors to HSE risk and uncertainty are identified and followed up.


The audit did not identify any non-conformities or improvement points.
