PSA has carried out an audit of Statoil's work on qualifying pipeline field joint coatings for the Johan Sverdrup export pipeline.

On 3 and 4 October 2017, the PSA carried out an audit of Statoil, in which the company verified that the follow-up and qualification of field joints for the export pipeline for Johan Sverdrup were being conducted in compliance with Statoil’s own requirements and statutory regulations.

The audit identified no regulatory non-conformities. PSA observed three areas with potential for improvement. These are document handling, fabrication and technical issues relating to the delivery and long-term testing of polymers.

The company has asked Statoil for an assessment of these improvement points by 8 December 2017.
