The audit was conducted between 20 April and 17 November 2022.


The objective of the audit was to monitor Neptune's management and follow-up of barriers at Gjøa. This included follow-up of the activities the company had and will be undertaking in 2022 relating to risk and barrier management.


During the audit, one non-conformity was identified, relating to overpressure protection.

In addition, five improvement points were identified concerning:

  • Better risk acceptance criteria
  • Better barrier management at Gjøa
  • Inadequate follow-up of performance requirements for check valves
  • Better coordination of responsibilities and authorities
  • Notification of hazard and accident situations

What happens now?

We have asked Neptune to report to us by 30 January 2023 on how the non-conformity will be addressed, and for their assessment of the improvement points observed.
