The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) has carried out an audit of Equinor and the company’s barriers for structures, maritime systems and risers at Aasta Hansteen.

The audit was conducted from 10 to 16 June 2021.

The objective of the audit was to verify Equinor's follow-up of the operation and maintenance of structures, maritime systems and risers, and to ensure that the company has a holistic approach to safe operation and operates in accordance with its own requirements and regulatory requirements.

Three non-conformities were identified relating to:
- Deficiencies in maintenance management
- Planning and prioritisation of maintenance
- Training related to maritime systems

In addition, two improvement points were identified, relating to:
- Stability
- Anchoring system

What happens now?
We have asked Equinor to report on how the non-conformities will be addressed. The company has also been asked for its assessment of the improvement points identified. The deadline for this is set at 15 October 2021.
