New appointments for DNV GL as signs of confidence return to North Sea

DNV GL, the multinational provider of risk management services, is further developing its consultancy services to address key industry challenges such as enhancing safety, efficiency and performance. To drive this process, DNV GL has appointed Peter Boyle as Aberdeen Operations Manager and John Morgan as UK Business Development Leader for Risk Advisory Services. Both positions will be based in DNV GL’s Aberdeen office.

Peter Boyle says: “It has been a challenging period for the industry, which has led us to innovate our core services for the Aberdeen market. Our main services have become more efficient by concentrating on the elements that add value to operators either by improving safety, or increasing production.” 

John Morgan adds: “In addition to the core services, and in response to market conditions and customer feedback, DNV GL has been working on numerous value-adding services such as risk-based inspection and combined operations planning, to maximise the number of personnel that can safely work on a platform.” 

Mr. Boyle has worked for DNV GL for 22 years. A chemical engineer, he specializes in safety engineering, providing consultancy services for many oil and gas facilities globally, and in managing significant asset integrity projects. 

Dr. Morgan, a Senior Principal Consultant, has 22 years leadership and technical experience with DNV GL and its predecessor companies. He is an expert in safety regulation and chairs the UK Oil and Gas major hazards technical group. 

Hari Vamadevan, UK Regional Manager, DNV GL – Oil & Gas, concludes: “Leaner operations following the oil price collapse has resulted in a reticence to invest in the North Sea in the last two years. But confidence is returning to the province and there are opportunities. We have examined our service portfolio and have a number of new ideas to offer a cost conscious market.”
