The audit was conducted between 25 January and 7 April 2022.


The objective of the audit was to assess how Seadrill is ensuring compliance with the authorities’ and their own requirements in relation to the management of major accident risk and barriers at West Linus.


Seven non-conformities were identified concerning:

  • Follow-up of barriers
  • Maintenance programme
  • Classification
  • Documentation
  • Documentary basis of competence concerning the facility’s barriers
  • Training and drills
  • Signage and marking of safety-critical equipment

What happens next?

We have asked Seadrill to report by 20 June 2022 on how the non-conformities will be addressed.
