Aker BP – Follow-up of Vessels with Emergency Response Functions

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 6/14/2022, Location: Europe

The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) has carried out an audit of Aker BP and their system for verifying and following up vessels with emergency response functions. The audit was conducted in November 2020 and April 2022.

The objective of the audit was to verify how the operator stipulates and ensures the emergency response functions provided by vessels. Among other things, we wanted to examine the operator’s and provider’s (shipowner’s) systematic approach for ensuring proper handling of hazard and accident situations.

No non-conformities were identified during the audit, but we observed two factors that we have chosen to categorise as improvement points. These concerned:
• Deficiencies in governing documents for ensuring interaction and effective communication between vessels and facilities
• Follow-up of emergency response functions on supply vessels

What happens now?
We have asked Aker BP to give us its assessment of the improvement points observed by 27 June 2022.
