Safeguarding and improving business performance: The power of joint innovation


Safeguarding and improving business performance

The power of joint innovation

Every year we invite our staff that work close with our customers to come up with new ideas for service and technology development. As a consequence we can address important industry issues. Our partners and customers have first-hand access to the output of these efforts. We are proud to present the results of some of the recent efforts here. Take advantage.

The projects now in the pipeline are no less exiting than those we have completed. Our ambitions are higher than ever and we invite our partners to join us in the pursuit of new achievements. Let’s join forces.

Statoil and DNV GL to drive standardisation of Subsea Factory interfaces

Subsea processing systems are tailor-made to meet field-specific requirements and components. Now Statoil is taking the initiative to standardise the interfaces for subsea processing plants on the seabed, also known as Subsea Factory. DNV GL is being asked as an independent party to initiate a Joint Industry Project (JIP) that will develop the standard. The JIP is open to operators to collaborate in ensuring major benefits throughout the subsea supply chain. 'Read more'

DNV GL proposes three new Joint Industry Projects to move the offshore pipeline industry forward

With the oil and gas industry’s push into new energy frontiers, the offshore pipeline industry is faced with greater technical challenges relating to pipelines and the expectation that it will optimise solutions to be cost effective. DNV GL is launching three new Joint Industry Projects (JIPs) to help the industry address these challenges. 'Read more'

New recommendations to avoid jacking system failure

A joint industry project on jacking system maintenance and inspection has resulted in a new DNV GL Recommended Practice. This provides guidance to ensure the correct and safe functioning of rack and pinion style jacking systems. The objective is to reduce the risk of gear failure, resulting in lower costs and higher availability throughout the asset’s life time. 'Read more'

Industry asks DNV GL to explore risks at small scale LNG bunkering and filling stations

In order to better understand the consequences of an accidental liquefied natural gas (LNG) release, DNV GL has been asked by the industry to initiate a Joint Industry Project (JIP). It will be run in collaboration with E&P companies and LNG market stakeholders. The JIP will contribute to the development of rigorous safety standards and guidelines for small scale LNG bunkering and filling stations. Other E&P and energy companies still have time to join the project. 'Read more'

New experimental data released to enhance CO2 pipeline design

First-of-its-kind data relating to the depressurisation of CO2 pipelines is being made freely available today through industry cooperation. This will help fill knowledge gaps associated with the safe and reliable pipeline transport of CO2 and result in cost efficiencies through a significantly improved design basis for CO2 pipelines.

DNV GL cooperation with industry to address risks from offshore CO2 pipelines

Offshore carbon dioxide (CO2) pipelines could potentially pose a risk for offshore infrastructures, ships and the marine environment. To demonstrate that CO2 pipelines can be operated safely and to ensure the risks are well understood, industry stakeholders have asked DNV GL to initiate a Joint Industry Project (JIP) “CO2 Subsea Releases - Small Scale Experimental Programme’’. Several major operators have already joined the ‘Sub-C-O2’ JIP including: National Grid, ENI, and Petrobras, but there is still time for others to join. 'Read more'

DNV GL launches a Joint Industry Project to combat external onshore-pipeline corrosion

Microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) is a serious threat to the integrity of onshore transmission pipelines and can lead to unexpected failures. Despite advances in understanding, there is limited knowledge to accurately predict its location and the rate of corrosion. For this reason, DNV GL is calling for partners to collaborate in a Joint Industry Project (JIP) to develop a Recommended Practice for the detection and mitigation of MIC. 'Read more'

DNV GL-led collaboration to enhance BOP maintenance

The maintenance of blowout preventers (BOPs) has significant financial, logistical and safety implications for drilling operators and rig owners. DNV GL has now established a Joint Industry Project (JIP) to develop a risk-based maintenance methodology with the aim to deliver more effective and cost-efficient BOP maintenance. Several BOP manufacturers, operators, rig owners and shelf state regulators have already joined the JIP, and others may still come on board. 'Read more'
