Hilda Kjeldstad: Norway’s Petroleum Regulations is in a Constant Process of Change


Their structure and fundamental principles remain constant, but Norway’s HSE regulations for the petroleum sector are otherwise in a constant process of change.

These rules represent the very basis for the high level of safety in the industry,” affirms Hilda Kjeldstad, who took over on 1 January as the PSA’s new coordinator in this area.

“Further development of the regulations could be crucial for our ability to achieve additional risk reductions and safety improvements.”

She points out that these provisions not only represent a legal framework but have also been framed to serve a specific purpose.

“They’re intended to be an appropriate tool for continuously enhancing the level of safety, and an instrument for regulatory supervision and management.”
