In 2005, the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA), gave special priority to a programme of ageing and life extension. The programme comprised technical investigations into how ageing will reduce the safety of the facilities and how this can be managed, plus cooperation with the petroleum industry to develop standards and guidelines for assessment of ageing facilities for life extension. In addition, audits have looked into the way operators are dealing with the implications of ageing facilities. This paper summarizes the outcome of the programme and the experience gained from it.
