Audit of BP’s operation and inspection of pipelines

17 April 2009

The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) conducted an audit of BP Norway AS (BP)’s operation and inspection of pipelines and subsea facilities on 17 March 2009. We did not identify any non-conformities in relation to regulatory requirements.
The audit was carried out as a meeting and covered management systems, technical state control, risk-based inspection and transfer of experience.

The purpose of the audit was to make sure the requirements in the health, environment and safety regulations are followed in terms of operations, maintenance and inspection of pipelines and subsea facilities.

Furthermore, the purpose was to contribute to the transfer of experience, in part in connection with the execution of a project aimed at technology development and the need for early first time internal inspection.
The PSA identified a potential for improvement in three areas: management of risk-based inspection, governing documents and technical state control of Hod 4” gas lift line.
