Risk management, technical advice and technical assurance

In September 2013, DNV and GL Noble Denton joined forces to bring greater expertise and enhanced innovation capabilities to their customers. The companies formed DNV GL because they had a vision to draw upon their proud heritages to build an industry leading technical advisor that could drive innovation and standardisation on behalf of the whole sector.

DNV GL's unique and world-renowned Spadeadam test centre allows full-scale testing to the extremes of operating conditions, including explosions and catastrophic failures.
DNV GL issues marine warranty approvals for some of the largest field developments, including the world’s first floating production facility (FPSO).
DNV GL provides consultancy, engineering and project management services on subsea developments, including concept selection, field architecture, flow assurance, flow lines, pipelines, risers, umbilicals, manifolds, templates, trees, jumpers and subsea controls.
Pipeline live intervention – Grouted Tee - DNV GL's alternative method of hot-tapping into high and low pressure pipelines that does not require major welding operations for both onshore and offshore operations.
GL Noble Denton approved the Troll A Platform. At an overall height of 472m, weighing 656,000t it is the tallest structure ever moved by mankind.

DNV GL is now the leading provider of risk management, technical advisory and technical assurance services to the oil and gas industry. The company is an innovation powerhouse, with the technical skills, scale and scope to tackle the industry’s most complex challenges. It is a strong and independent third-party advisor that is also working to promote greater transparency in the industry by developing, setting and sharing new standards.

From onshore pipelines to oil and gas processing facilities, subsea production structures and deep water floating platforms, DNV GL calls on its decades of technical expertise to support the industry in its goals to improve safety, reliability and performance. The company also produces more than 170 sector-leading standards and recommended practices that support and promote overall industry safety and growth.

Technical expertise to enhance offshore safety, reliability and performance

Customers tell DNV GL that they choose to partner with the company because its people work hard to understand their needs, and deliver the highest standards of expertise to match. DNV GL invests in developing the competencies of its employees, helping them to stay at the cutting edge of their technical fields through internal and industry qualification and training schemes, as well as technology programmes with academic partners, such as the University of California at Berkley.
