Swedish operator Lundin has been reprimanded over safety failings at the Edvard Greig field in the central North Sea.
The development consists of a fixed facility with a steel jacket and a full processing installation and a separate jack-up rig for drilling and well completions.
Norwegian safety watchdog the Petroleum Safety Authority found three “non-conformitites” during an inspection of the facilities last month.
The risks related to potential benzene exposure, manning of the central control room, and discussion of and information about control measures.
Six improvement points were also identified.
These concerned chemical exposure, noise exposure, risk of developing musculo-skeletal disorders for maintenance personnel, involvement of safety representatives, governing documents and manning in the event of sickness absences.
Lundin has been asked to report on how the non-conformities will be dealt with, and for an assessment of the improvement points identified.
