The objective of the audit was to monitor that the management of maintenance, including its follow-up and any ongoing changes of significance for such management, meets the authorities’ and the company’s own requirements. We also wanted to see whether work to improve maintenance management is ensuring that important contributors to HSE risk and uncertainty are identified and followed up.


Non-conformities were identified relating to:

  • Strategy for maintenance management
  • Planning of maintenance

In addition, improvement points were identified relating to:

  • Follow-up of maintenance programmes, classification of equipment and assignment of maintenance concepts
  • Follow-up of internal requirements

Equinor has been given a deadline of 29 May 2019 report on how the non-conformities and improvement points will be addressed.
