Norway’s offshore safety watchdog has found two issues with the safe plugging of wells in Statoil’s Kvitebjørn field.

The Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) audited the energy giant’s plans there between November 2 to 23.

It found two issues relating to decision support and non-conformity handling in connection with permanent plugging and abanfonment.

The PSA also identified an improvement point in connection with the overview of historical data.

Statoil has been given until February 22 to report back on how the issues have been addressed.

Kvitebjørn lies east of Gullfaks in the Norwegian North Sea.
