PSA probes Edvard Grieg development
- Exploration & Production
From 8 to 10 December 2014, the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) carried out an audit of Lundin Norway AS and the Edvard Grieg development project, in the Norwegian North Sea.
The Edvard Grieg field is being developed using a manned fixed facility comprising a processing facility, living quarters and drilling by means of an external jack-up drilling rig. The field is situated approximately 18 km west of Stavanger.
The PSA has said that the objective of the audit was to assess how Lundin is ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements for barrier management in the Edvard Grieg development project.
Non-conformities were identified in connection with the emergency shutdown system and evacuation routes.
An improvement point was identified in connection with deluge system automation.
