The audit was conducted from 5 to 9 October 2020.


The objective was to monitor whether the company’s governance and management of operations and maintenance linked to materials handling and crane and lifting operations complied with applicable regulations.

As part of the audit, we also followed up on previous supervisory activity, notably following the incident at Jotun B on 19 May 2018 and how Vår Energi (then Point Resources) has addressed the findings of the investigation of this incident.


The audit identified four non-conformities within the domains of:

  • The maintenance programme
  • Barriers
  • Updating and accessibility of governing documents
  • Access to crane boom

We also identified two improvement points linked to:

  • Materials handling
  • Data collection

What happens next?

We have asked Vår Energi to report by 19 February 2021 on how the non-conformities will be addressed. We have also asked the company for their assessment of the improvement points observed.
