The audit was conducted from 27 to 30 November 2023.


The objective of the audit was to verify that the management of logistics and emergency preparedness on board Åsgard B complies with the regulatory requirements, and that Equinor follows up and works systematically to prevent accidents.


We identified two non-conformities during the audit. These concerned:

  • Emergency operation of lifting equipment
  • Loading and storage decks

We also observed four improvement points concerning:

  • The management system
  • Goods lift
  • Person weight for rafts
  • Handling of patients from MOB boat

What happens now?

We have asked Equinor to report by 5 February 2024 on how the non-conformities will be addressed and for their assessment of the improvement points observed.
