Pipeline systems represent significant financial investment and constitute a key element of the industrial and public value chain. Ensuring that each pipeline is designed, fabricated and operated in a safe, reliable and cost-effective manner involves a multitude of professional disciplines.
DNV supplies the industry with a full range of services and capabilities related to the development, operation and maintenance of pipeline systems.
DNV can assist you in selecting the right transport solution, evaluating aspects rating from availability and tariffs associated with existing infrastructure, to cost, revenue and risks related to a new solution.
From well to shore, from concept to operation, from internal flow to external threat - DNV offers the full range of pipeline-related services.
DNV’s transparent and fully independent approach to verification, certification, quality surveillance and marine operations will help reduce and manage risk, thereby ensuring a successful project.
As pipelines are put into operation or approach maturity in their design life, a different set of considerations and capabilities are required in order to manage the integrity of the pipeline system.
DNV’s first pipeline code was issued in 1976. Since then we have created a series of internationally recognised standards and recommended practices together with the pipeline industry.
The DNV Offshore Service Specifications (OSS) lay down procedural requirements for obtaining and retaining class certificates and other conformity statements for offshore units, installations and objects.
DNV has developed a pipeline training programme covering all aspects of pipeline technology from concept to operation.
