The audit was conducted from 22 to 23 March 2021. 


The objective of the audit was to investigate whether Equinor's follow-up of process safety, risk and barrier management, emergency preparedness, degradation mechanisms and assembly of a subsea production system for Johan Castberg complies with the company's own and the regulatory requirements. 


No regulatory non-conformities were identified during the audit.  

An improvement point was identified concerning non-conformity management. 

What happens now? 

We have asked Equinor to provide us with its assessment of the improvement point observed. The reply deadline is set at 15 June 2021.
