Petroleum Safety Authority Norway conducted order to Shell following audit of comprehensive chemical management

Monday, Apr 25, 2011

During the period 13-15 October 2010, the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) conducted an audit of A/S Norske Shell’s (Shell’s) systems for comprehensive chemical management on Draugen and Nyhamna. We have now issued Shell an order in line with the earlier notification.

The audit revealed weaknesses in Shell’s systems for following up the chemical working environment in relation to regulatory requirements.

The following regulatory nonconformities were identified:

  • Mapping and risk assessment of chemical exposure was deficient and did not provide an adequate basis for decisions regarding improvement measures
  • Duty to substitute chemicals based on health risk was not adequately followed up
  • Requirements for HSE-related chemical information were not safeguarded

On this basis, the PSA issued a notification of order to the company.
