The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) has carried out an audit of Equinor and their management of technical safety and risk at Visund. The audit was conducted in November 2021.

The audit focused on Equinor's management and follow-up of Visund in the areas:

holistic risk management
robust operations
maintenance management
barrier management (technical, operational and organisational elements)

The audit identified breaches of the regulations in the following areas:
Planning and prioritisation
Risk reduction
Non-conformity handling
Ignition source control
Passive fire protection

We also observed one factor that we have chosen to categorize as an improvement point. This concerned:
Resistance to loads

What happens now?
We have asked Equinor to report to us by 14 February 2022 on how the non-conformities will be addressed, and to give us their assessment of the improvement point observed.
