Source: 11/11/2021, Location: Europe

The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) has carried out an audit of Seadrill Europe Management AS (Seadrill) and the management and integrity of the West Bollsta mobile drilling rig.

The audit was conducted from 25 to 28 October 2021.

The objective of the audit was to verify through discussions and verifications that West Bollsta's management of stability, watertight and weathertight integrity, ballast systems and waves in deck complied with relevant regulations.

No non-conformities were identified.

Three improvement points were identified, concerning:
- Gaskets on weathertight sliding doors
- Tolerance between guide rollers and track
- Labelling of air duct valves

What happens now?
We have asked Seadrill for its assessment of the improvement points observed.

The reply deadline is set at 30 November 2021.
