The audit was conducted on 23 and 24 April 2024.


The objective was to ensure that Gassco and Kollsnes have a collective approach to the follow-up of the integrity of the pipelines that arrive at and leave Kollsnes on the seaward side. We included the receiving and return facilities for the pipelines, and followed up the integrity management of the pipelines and onshore elements at Kollsnes.


We did not identify any regulatory non-conformities during this audit, but we observed two areas with potential for improvement. These concerned the interface and condition of insulation on pipes and valves.

What happens now?

We have asked Gassco to provide us with their assessment of the improvement points observed by 30 June 2024.
