The audit was conducted from 19 to 21 March 2024.


The objective of the audit was to verify that Equinor complies with regulatory requirements appertaining to well integrity in the operating phase at Njord A. This includes requirements for a management system, securing of wells, recording and follow-up of non-conformities and the use of risk analyses in respect of barrier weaknesses.


One non-conformity was identified during the audit concerning a lack of documentation of the protection of well integrity during temporary abandonment of a well.

What happens now?

We have asked Equinor to report by 18 May 2024 on how the non-conformity will be addressed.
