Engie handed order from offshore safety body over gas leak

The Gjøa platform
The Gjøa platform

Norway’s Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) has issued an order to Engie E& P Norge over a gas leak from a North Sea platform.

A leak came from the Gjøa semi-submersible in June last year, situated around 40 miles west of Florø in Norway, forcing production to be halted.

No one was hurt but the platform was down-manned.

Engie said inspections showed wielding issues in the pump where the leak occurred and in six other condensate pumps.

The PSA’s investigation found non-comformities in relation to barriers and the barrier management system, organisation and management, responding to vibration and management and the maintenance system.

It has now ordered Engie to check safety-critical equipment is operated, tested and maintained in a way which ensures the performance of the barriers at all times.

Engie has until February 16 to comply.

The order states: “Engie is ordered to take the necessary measures to ensure that safety-critical equipment is operated, tested and maintained in a way which ensures the performance of the barriers at all times.

“The deadline for compliance with this order is set to 16 February 2018. We must be informed when the order has been complied with.”

Energy Voice has asked Engie E&P for comment.
