Section last changed: 01 January 2016
By environmental monitoring of offshore petroleum activities irregularities and deviations connected with the activities, can be detected. Examples of such deviations can be abnormally high THC values, which cannot be linked to known discharges. The operator has a duty to determine the reason for the deviation and take corrective action if necessary.
Deviations shall be reported to the Norwegian Environment Authority and the Norwegian Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority as soon as possible, cf. Section 34 of the Management Regulations.
