PSA Inspects Fabrication of Gina Krog Flexible Risers


The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) has carried out an audit of Statoil and the fabrication of flexible risers for Gina Krog FSO.

The objective of the audit was to monitor the fabrication of flexible risers, follow up the operator and supplier/subcontractor and verify that the project is being planned and executed in compliance with regulatory requirements.

According to PSA, no non-conformities were identified.

However, two improvement points were identified in connection with document management, and responsibility and authority.

PSA said it has given Statoil a deadline of November 10, 2015 to report on how the improvement points will be dealt with.

Gina Krog (previously Dagny) is located about 30 kilometers northwest of Sleipner. The plan is to develop Gina Krog with a platform resting on the seabed, while the wells will be drilled with a mobile jack-up drilling rig. The liquid will be transported via a tanker, and the gas via the Sleipner field.
