Eni given notice of order following Goliat audit

first_imgNotice of orderThe PSA’s audit showed improvements in a number of areas on the Goliat FPSO compared with earlier conditions. Nevertheless, the PSA identified deficiencies in key elements related to managing risk and barriers.On that basis, Eni was given a notice of order. The company was told to draw up a realistic and binding plan for completing outstanding safety-critical work. That also includes completing the status of the technical condition of safety-critical barriers.The deadline for compliance with the order is March 1, 2019. The PSA must be informed when the order has been carried out.Eni was also asked to explain to the PSA how the other nonconformities will be dealt with by January 15, 2019. The PSA also requested the company’s assessment of the improvement point which was observed.Once a response has been received from Eni, the PSA will take the initiative to hold a meeting with the company to review and verify the various responses. The meeting will take place by February 20, 2019, at the latest. Norwegian offshore safety body, the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA), has given a notice of order to Eni Norge regarding risk and barrier management at the Goliat field offshore Norway. Goliat FPSO; Source: Eni NorgeThe PSA said on Tuesday that the notice of order was given to Eni following an audit of the company’s follow-up and management of electrical facilities on Goliat.Conducted from October 15-19, the audit aimed to follow up how Eni is complying with technical, operational, and organizational regulatory requirements for electrical facilities on the Goliat floating production, storage, and offloading (FPSO) vessel in the Barents Sea.It was a follow-up to an earlier audit of Eni covering electrical safety and responsibility for electrical facilities on Goliat, which led to a report on in late 2017, and an associated order. Audit resultsThe PSA said that the orders issued after earlier audits of the Goliat FPSO had an effect. Eni’s work on following up Ex-motors improved and the company pursued further improvements related to training and procedures for electrical discipline.The safety watchdog added that there were challenges with the way the company worked to take overall care of issues identified earlier.Faults and deficiencies are still be uncovered which, combined with the quantity of outstanding maintenance, presents challenges related to handling individual and overall risks on the FPSO.Also, during the audit, the company could not explain how far the combined consequences of the non-conformities influenced the overall risk picture onboard.In the opinion of the PSA, the amount of outstanding work related to the electrical and instrumentation disciplines is relatively large. Also, technical faults and deficiencies in key barrier elements, and in the follow-up of these in the SAP maintenance management system, were identified by the audit.“The PSA’s observations from this audit show that faults and deficiencies still exist which, until they are corrected, represent a source of uncertainty which makes a negative contribution to the risk picture for the Goliat FPSO,” the safety body said.Following the audit, the PSA held a meeting with Eni on November 14 where the company presented aspects related to its management of major accident risk and measures already initiated to correct the non-conformity related to fire dampers.The audit identified a total of 11 non-conformities regarding fire dampers, emergency shutdown system, emergency power – uninterruptible power supply, emergency lighting, safety systems, monitoring and control, electrical installations, training, organisation and operating procedures, maintenance of safety critical equipment and functions, evacuation from rooms containing high-voltage installations, handling non-conformities, and risk and barrier management.An improvement point was also identified related to the availability of power in the emergency sick bay.last_img read more

Please stop fooling around and land on reality,’ he said. ‘Let’s be honest, there are much more important priorities than any sport.’ Matches in France, England, Italy and Spain have been suspended with immediate effect, making Germany the last of the ‘big five’ to do so.

Chelsea row: Social media reaction

first_img Press Association Not everyone was speaking up for Carneiro though as f ormer Chelsea doctor Ralph Rogers sprung to Mourinho’s defence. He told MailOnline Sport: “You’re not supposed to take centre stage if you are a physician to a team. You have to understand your dynamic in the club. You are not a player. “Her putting that ‘thanks for the support’ on Facebook was extremely naive. That would upset anyone. What was she trying to achieve there? Are you bigger than the manager? You’re never going to win, nor should you. ” You’re not supposed to be a celebrity. You can’t be a celebrity doctor, come on. Let’s get real.” Chelsea doctor Eva Carneiro has felt the wrath of Jose Mourinho this week after the champions began the defence of their Premier League title with a draw at home to Swansea last Saturday. Carneiro and physio Jon Fearn were criticised by the Portuguese manager, who told the media that their ”impulsive and naive” decision showed they did not ”understand the game” as Eden Hazard had to leave the field for treatment, leaving the Blues temporarily with nine men. Here, Press Association Sport looks at the reaction on social media over the row. Gibraltar-born Carneiro posted on her Facebook account on Sunday evening: “I would like to thank the general public for their overwhelming support. Really very much appreciated.” Her post has since been liked more than 34,500 times and shared by almost 600 people, while a fans page – We support Eva Carneiro – has been set up on Facebook and has received over 900 likes since Tuesday. Presenter Gary Lineker made a joke of Mourinho’s comments following the match, as the former England and Tottenham striker tweeted: “Might apply for the Chelsea doctor’s job given the applicant must understand football. Not sure if any medical knowledge is required.” Arsenal fans on Twitter have come out in support of Carneiro, saying the Premier League rivals want to sign the Chelsea first-team doctor. One supporter, TweetofArsenal posted: “Mourinho angry with Eva Carneiro. MAKE THIS HAPPEN ARSENAL!!!” With Shimz_Afc adding: “Sign up Eva Carneiro Arsene. We need all the physios we can get at @Arsenal” as Pamtua wrote: “Eva Carneiro is @Arsenal ‘s solution to an injury free season. lets sign her. C’mon Wenger forget Benzema.” But Chelsea fans do not want to see the back of Carneiro, with feroze17 tweeting: “Hopefully she stays at Chels and doesn’t leave…” Zeratul_Artanis, a Newcastle fan, shared his support for the doctor with his tweet, which read: ” I cannot believe the level of disrespect shown by @ChelseaFC and #Mourinho. You should never publically lambast staff! #EvaCarneiro.” last_img read more
