The audit was carried out between 2 February and 15 June 2021.


The objective of the audit was to assess whether the company's management of the conversion project at Njord A within drilling systems complied with regulatory requirements and standards. This interdisciplinary approach was intended to provide a basis for assessing the company’s follow-up of requirements, plans, execution and verifications across disciplines.


No non-conformities were identified.

Three improvement points were identified, relating to:

  • Pressure control equipment
  • Positioning, labelling and signage
  • Technical conditions

What happens next?

We have asked Equinor for their assessment of the improvement points observed. The deadline for this is set at 1 September 2021.
