Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) Norway has carried out an audit of the export pipelines at Statoil’s Johan Sverdrup field in the North Sea.

The PSA carried out an audit of Statoil and the installation concept for the two pipelines from Johan Sverdrup.

The audit was conducted as a meeting at Statoil’s premises at Forus, followed by an audit at Saipem, which is responsible for performing the pipeline installation.

The oil from the Johan Sverdrup field will be piped to Mongstad in Hordaland. The gas will be transported through a pipeline linked to the Statpipe system, and then onwards to the processing facility at Kårstø in Rogaland.

No non-conformities were detected during the audit, PSA said.

However, improvement points were identified relating to the updating of governing documents and the plan for performing verifications.

Statoil has been given a deadline of February 15, 2017 to report on how the improvement points will be assessed.

The field is planned to start production in late 2019.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
