Var Energi – Jotun FPSO – Management of Barriers

Source: 5/31/2021, Location: Europe

We have carried out an audit of Var Energi’s management of barriers on Jotun FPSO within the domain of process integrity.

The audit was conducted from 22 to 26 March 2021.

The audit covered the facility’s technical solutions, as well as systems, processes and activities for barrier and maintenance management.

The audit comprised spot checks of the following topics:

- Strategy, plans and execution in respect of completion, system testing and handover to operations
- Active firefighting systems
- Fire integrity and passive fire protection
- Electrical safety and electrical facilities
- Ignition source control
- Safety instrumented systems
- Overpressure protection and pressure relief
- Strategy, plans and status in respect of maintenance and preservation in the project phase.

The objective of the audit was to assess how Var Energi, in cooperation with the stakeholders involved, is ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements for the management of major accident risk and barriers in respect of the conversion of Jotun FPSO at the shipyard.

No non-conformities were identified during the audit, but improvement points were observed in the following areas:
- Barrier management
- Solution selected for the design of safety instrumented systems
- Design of operating device and human-machine interface

What happens now?
We have asked Var Energi to give us its assessment of the improvement points observed by 28 June 2021.
