The audit was conducted from 14 to 16 March 2023, with the assistance of the Civil Aviation Authority Norway.


The objective of the audit was to verify planned management of emergency preparedness on the Johan Castberg facility in connection with preparation for operation, and to verify that the helideck complies with regulatory requirements in order to help ensure safe helicopter operations and personnel transport.


No non-conformities were identified.

One improvement point was identified relating to preparation for operation of the facility.

On the helideck, there was one non-conformity/observation. This can be found in a separate non-conformity list from CAA Norway, at the bottom of this page.

What happens next?

We have asked Equinor for their assessment of the improvement point identified. The reply deadline is set at 31 May 2023.
