The audit was conducted from 15 to 17 August 2023 and was directed at Gassco as the operator and Equinor as the technical service provider (TSP).


The objective of the audit was to verify Gassco’s management of materials handling, cranes and lifting, maintenance of lifting facilities, work at height including scaffolding, fall protection and access techniques.


We identified two non-conformities and one improvement point during the audit.

The non-conformities concerned:

  • Updating of governing documents
  • Arrangements for the control and maintenance of scaffolding materials

The improvement point concerned:

  • Inadequate labelling of equipment in the area by quay 3

What happens now?

We have asked Gassco to report by 6 October 2023 on how the non-conformities will be addressed, and for their assessment of the improvement point observed.
