Our decision is based on the information provided in the AoC application concerning the technical condition of the facility and the applicant’s organisation and management system, as well as the authorities’ verifications and other case processing.

The validity of the Acknowledgement of Compliance assumes that Odfjell ensures that the facility and relevant parts of the company’s organisation and management systems are maintained so as to fulfil the terms and conditions set out in the PSA’s decision.

The facility first received an Acknowledgement of Compliance in 2014, when it was operated by Seadrill.

As part of Odfjell’s taking over of operatorship, the company has applied for a new AoC for Linus. The PSA has followed up this process in the form of meetings in several disciplines.
