Martin Linge is an oil and gas field in the northern part of Norway’s North Sea sector. Currently under development, the field is due to come on stream in 2018.
The operator for the field is Total. Other licensees are Petoro and Statoil.
Martin Linge is being developed with a fully integrated fixed production facility supported by a steel jacket, combined with a floating storage and offloading (FSO) unit for oil storage.
The production facility is under construction at the Samsung yard in South Korea.
An audit of the Martin Linge project was conducted by the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) on 28–30 March 2017. This was directed at technical safety, electrical equipment, maintenance management, and Total’s own follow-up of technical barriers during the commissioning phase at the Samsung yard.
On the basis of the findings made during the audit, the PSA has given notice of the following order:
“Pursuant to Section 69 of the framework regulations on administrative decisions, see Sections 6, 11 and 21 of the management regulations on management of health, safety and the environment, basis for making decisions and decision criteria, and follow-up respectively, we order Total E&P Norge AS to identify and correct as far as possible faults and deficiencies, and to assess applicable plans, prioritization and use of resources to ensure acceptable commissioning before installation on the field.”
