Havtil was notified of this damage by Åsgard operator Equinor on the day it occurred.

Stormy conditions have been blamed for the incident. The remains of a fire cabinet discovered inside the cabin suggests that it was responsible for smashing the window.

Following the decision to investigate the incident, a team of specialists from Havtil has now begun work.

Its investigation will include the following:

  • clarifying the course of events and the scope of the incident
  • assessing its actual and potential consequences
  • assessing its direct and underlying causes
  • identifying nonconformities and improvement points related to the regulations
  • applying the necessary enforcement powers to correct possible regulatory breaches
  • making public the findings
  • contributing to experience transfer to and learning by other players in the petroleum sector.

The investigation will be summed up in a report published at havtil.no.
