Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) Norway has carried out an audit of Norske Shell (Shell) focused on the replacement of flexible risers on the Draugen field.

The audit focused on the Shell’s work on replacing flexible risers on the Draugen field in the Norwegian Sea.

The object of the audit was to verify that the new flexible risers for Draugen were designed and manufactured in compliance with the company’s requirements and statutory regulations.

Topics of the audit included status and plans, risk handling, involvement of operations, governing documents, analyses, non-conformity handling, follow-up of suppliers, verification activities, learning and documentation.

The audit identified no regulatory non-conformities, but two improvement points. These concerned the areas of risk management and investigations and continuous improvement, PSA said.

PSA has given Shell a deadline until September 01, 2018, to provide feedback with its assessment of the improvement points.
