West Linus rig gets approval to operate in Norway
The jack-up rig West Linus has received the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway’s Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC).
An Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) is a statement from the PSA indicating that a mobile facility is considered to be in compliance with relevant requirements in the petroleum activities regulations.
After the AoC has been granted, the facility owner is responsible for ensuring that the organisation, management system and facility’s technical condition always comply with the regulations.
West Linus and relevant parts of North Atlantic Management AS’s organisation and management systems are considered to be in compliance with relevant regulatory requirements for petroleum activities.
The validity of this Acknowledgement of Compliance assumes that North Atlantic Management AS ensures that the facility and relevant parts of the company’s organisation and management systems are maintained, so to fulfil terms and conditions set out in the PSA’s decision.
In connection with the AoC application for West Linus, the PSA carried out audits within several selected disciplines.
