Repsol – Gyda – Planning & Follow-up of Removal

Source: 6/14/2022, Location: Europe

The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) has carried out an audit of Repsol Norge (Repsol) and their planning and follow-up of the removal of the superstructure, jacket and subsea template on the Gyda field. The audit was conducted on 20 and 21 April 2022.

The objective of the audit was to verify that the planning and follow-up of the removal complied with requirements in the HSE regulations.

The audit identified one non-conformity. This concerned:
• Risk reduction

We also observed four factors that we have chosen to categorize as improvement points. These concerned:
• Safety in load-bearing structural elements
• Follow-up of subcontractors’ competence
• Follow-up of noise
• Use of respirators

What happens now?
We have asked Repsol to report to us by 1 July 2022 on how the non-conformity will be addressed, and for their assessment of the improvement points observed.

Gyda is a field in the southern part of the Norwegian sector in the North Sea, between the Ula and Ekofisk fields. The water depth is 66 metres. Gyda was discovered in 1980, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 1987. The field has been developed with a combined drilling, accommodation and processing facility with a steel jacket. Production started in 1990 and ceased in 2020. Plugging and abandonment of wells is ongoing. According to the formal removal resolution, decommissioning must be completed by the end of 2023.
