PSA Audits ExxonMobil’s barriers management at Jotun B
From 3 to 5 February 2014, the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway carried out an audit of ExxonMobil Exploration and Production AS at Jotun B platform.
The objective of the audit was to verify that ExxonMobil’s management and follow-up of barriers complied with the company’s and the authorities’ requirements.
Non-conformities were identified in connection with updating of documentation and labelling of battery banks.
In addition, improvement points were identified in connection with maintenance and cabling in cabinets.
The Jotun field is developed with two installations; a wellhead platform (Jotun B), which transfers resources to a floating production, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO, Jotun A). The field is located in the North Sea, 200 km west of Stavanger.
As the operator of the Jotun field, ExxonMobil has 45 per cent ownership interests. Other partners are Dana (45 per cent), Det norske (7 per cent), and Faroe Petroleum (3 per cent).
