PSA Inspects Neptune’s Fenja Pipes Fabrication

Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) Norway has carried out an audit of Neptune Energy Norge focused on the fabrication of production pipes for the Fenja field, located in the Norwegian Sea, 35 kilometers southwest of the Njord field.

The objective of the audit was to monitor qualification and production/testing of flowlines for Fenja are carried out in accordance with established requirements and standards.

Part of the task was to audit how the operator is exercising its supervisory duty with regard to the supplier TechnipFMC.

The Fenja development solution consists of two subsea templates with a total of six wells tied back to the Njord A facility.

It is planned to develop the Fenja field using flowlines employing new technology in the form of Electrically Trace Heated (ETH) pipe-in-pipe.

According to PSA, the audit did not identify any non-conformities.

One improvement point was identified relating to the lack of documentation of the choice of recognized standard within the electrical facilities.

Neptune has been given a deadline of December 18, 2018 to report on how the improvement point will be addressed.

To remind, Neptune acquired 30 per cent interest in, and operatorship of the Fenja development project when it acquired VNG Norge.

The transaction added three producing fields, two development projects and 42 licences to Neptune Energy’s existing portfolio.

Fenja is scheduled to come on stream in 2021.
