The audit was conducted from 22 to 24 May 2023 with assistance from the Civil Aviation Authority Norway. 


The objective of the audit was to ensure that the helideck at Statfjord A complies with regulatory requirements, thereby contributing to safe helicopter operations. A further objective was to verify the design and outfitting of the helideck on the facility, and systems and documents relating to its operation. 


We did not identify any non-conformities or improvement points in this audit. 

CAA Norway made seven observations during the audit. These can be found in a separate non-conformity list from CAA Norway, at the bottom of the Norwegian page. 

What happens next? 

We have asked Equinor for a response to our letter by 31 August 2023.
