Statfjord A, B and C have been subjected to a heavy battering throughout their producing lives. Stringent safety standards call for constant inspection and maintenance of these platforms. Many of the areas to be monitored are hard to get at – inside piping in the shafts or at the tip of the flare boom, for instance. Climbers – rope access technicians – have been used since the 1990s to reach the most inaccessible places.
