OSLO, Norway – Repsol must address deficiencies identified by Norway’s Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) during an audit last October at the Gyda field in the North Sea.
These concern cranes and lifting, scaffolding and management of the working environment in preparation for late life and platform removal operations.
The PSA found 11 non-conformities with Norwegian regulations including chemical exposure; the register of employees exposed to chemicals; calculation of daily noise exposure; follow-up of wire ropes for cranes; the procedure for lifting operations; and maintenance of scaffolding materials.
In addition, the audit highlighted the need for improvement in training in the working environment.
Repsol must respond by Sept. 7, 2020.
