DNV GL has secured a contract to support DNO’s operations and developments in the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS).

Under the agreement, DNV GL will provide a portfolio of engineering and management support and verification services to DNO’s NCS operations.

The company will also provide support to DNO in improving safety and maintenance compliance while reducing its environmental footprint in the NCS.

The three-year contract has an option to be extended to an additional four years.

DNV GL – Oil & Gas Subsea and Asset Risk Management department head Geir Egil Eie said: “DNV GL with our capabilities, expertise and approach is looking forward to working with DNO to keep production efficient, operations safe and reduce environmental impact.”

The company will manage the work from its office in Stavanger, Norway, with support from a global technical network of 2,000 experts.

Global services to be provided will range from verification to due diligence studies.

DNV GL noted that many projects are already underway including environmental work, materials study and hydrogen-induced stress cracking (HISC) assessments, while much more are expected next year.

DNV GL Oil & Gas regional manager Arve Johan Kalleklev said: “Through close collaboration and understanding of DNO’s aims, we are committed to providing the highest quality support across all aspects of risk management and HSE.

“The integrated nature of this arrangement means we can be proactive and flexible to meet DNO’s needs, with ongoing dialogue across all disciplines to add value wherever possible.”

Founded in 1971, DNO operates and supports more than 20 licences, as well as works in partnership on projects in the NCS, UK and Middle East.
