PSA Inspects Detail Engineering of Johan Sverdrup RP Jacket


Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) has carried out an audit of Statoil’s follow-up of the detail engineering of the Riser Platform (RP) jacket for Johan Sverdrup.

Phase 1 of Statoil’s development of the Johan Sverdrup consists of four jackets. The RP jacket weighs approx. 27,000 tonnes, and is the largest jacket designed by Kværner.

The Johan Sverdrup RP jacket is scheduled for delivery in the summer of 2017 from Kværner Verdal.

PSA performed an audit during the final phase of engineering at Kværner, and fabrication at Verdal has now started.

No non-conformities were detected during this audit, PSA informed.

Four improvement points were identified in connection with:

  • Monitoring of analyses;
  • Learning and continuous improvement;
  • Competence;
  • Non-conformity handling.

PSA has given Statoil a deadline of January 04, 2016 to report on how the improvement points will be dealt with.
