The audit was conducted on 14 September 2023.


The objective of the audit was to verify that, through the alliance model, Aker BP has complied with regulatory requirements during the planning and execution of KEG production drilling using the Deepsea Nordkapp semi-submersible drilling facility.

The audit focused on experience transfer, change management and learning, including the identification and management of risk associated with the drilling of long multilateral well sections.


The audit identified two factors that we have chosen to categorize as improvement points.

  • Inadequate visualisation of well control risk in the project risk register
  • Inadequate decision support for changing the well barrier loop

What happens now?

We have asked Aker BP to give us its assessment of the improvement points observed by 24 November 2023.
