Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) Norway has carried out an audit of the Statoil’s Snorre Expansion project.
The objective of the audit was to verify that the Snorre Expansion is being planned and designed in compliance with the company’s own requirements and statutory regulations.
No non-conformities or improvement points were identified, PSA said.
The background to the audit was the preparation of an impact assessment and plan for development and operation (PDO) for the Snorre field. The audit is also linked to the lifetime extension applications for Snorre A and Snorre B, PSA explained.
The Snorre Expansion project aims to increase oil recovery from the Snorre field in the North Sea, located in production licences PL057 and PL089.
The field is situated in the Tampen area in the northern North Sea.
