DNV GL - Oil & Gas: updates and information related to the COVID-19 outbreak

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to develop, DNV GL is taking action to prioritize the wellbeing of our people and our customers, while supporting the oil and gas industry’s continued focus on safe, efficient and sustainable operations. Face-to-face contact and travel may now be more restricted, but our experts remain on hand through a range of technologies (including the phone!).

Remote survey

Keep your DNV GL surveys and inspections on schedule with remote technology
.
.
At a time when travel restrictions and cost control are increasingly affecting oil and gas operations, remote survey technologies can bring flexibility and schedule reliability or removing the risk of delays when travelling is not an option. At DNV GL, we offer remote survey options to instantly connect your operations with our inspection, verification and marine warranty experts. Find out more here. 

Annual dynamic positioning trials during COVID-19

.
.
Emergency and interim measures are being put in place by flag states and recognized organizations to allow commercial marine activities to continue safely while restrictions on travel, port and vessel access and surveys persist.

Regulatory and industry bodies indicate that vessel owners will not be required to conduct a full, annual dynamic positioning (DP) trials programme during this period. However, an interim trials programme with a reduced number of tests may be needed in the cases of system failure, loss of performance or upon charterers’ request.

DNV GL’s Noble Denton marine services experts are on hand to help vessel owners prepare for, and conduct, interim DP trials. We provide industry test sheets, in addition to expert written guidance on every step you must take to configure your systems, prepare for and conduct tests, document results and take remedial action. Our experts are also available 24/7 through voice and video calling, live chat and email to give technical support on executing interim DP trials and evaluating the results.
