The audit was carried out from 7 March to 13 April 2023.


The objective of the audit was to assess how Okea ensures compliance with regulatory requirements concerning the management of major accident risk and barriers within technical safety, process safety and electrical engineering at Draugen.

During the audit, we also wanted to verify that previously identified non-conformities had been addressed in accordance with feedback to us.


The audit identified one non-conformity in the following area:

  • Follow-up of performance requirements

In addition, we observed two matters that we have chosen to categorise as improvement points. These concerned:

  • Securing of valves in the correct position
  • Analyses at technical level

What happens now?

We have asked Okea to report to us by 8 June 2023 on how the non-conformity will be addressed, and for their assessment of the improvement points observed.
