The audit was conducted from 11 May to 19 November 2021.


This audit was a follow-up of a similar audit of Transocean in 2020, in which Transocean informed us of both changes in the organisation of the business and the introduction of a new maintenance management system based on a common international Transocean template.


The objective of the audit was to obtain information and knowledge from the company regarding follow-up of changes in Transocean’s management system. Particular emphasis was placed on the company's maintenance management and support functions, outside of Norway, within selected disciplines.


We identified four non-conformities, concerning:

  • Follow-up of changes in support functions
  • Securing of Norwegian regulatory competence and responsibility therefore
  • List of equipment in AIM
  • Monitoring of loss of containment failure mechanism

No improvement points were identified during the audit.

What happens now?

We have asked Transocean to report to us by 25 March 2022 on how the non-conformities will be addressed.
