June 25, 2015 | Oil & Gas | PRESS RELEASERisk-based approach to valve testing in wells could save US$10m annually per assetReducing expenditure while continuing to improve safety and reduce risk is a key driver for the oil and gas industry especially in today’s cost constrained environment. DNV GL and ExproSoft are now joining forces to offer a risk based approach to testing barrier valves in subsea completed wells applicable worldwide. The objective is to reduce both downtime and risk related to shut-in and restart of wells in addition to substantial cost savings.
June 19, 2015 | Oil & Gas | PRESS RELEASEDNV GL research paper shows bright future for subsea processing; Outlines highs and lows towards an ‘all subsea’ solutionDNV GL today launched a research paper exploring the viability of moving offshore oil and gas processing subsea, including the techno-economics of an ‘all subsea’ solution. The report addresses current limitations, but also highlights opportunities for subsea technology.
June 04, 2015 | Oil & Gas | PRESS RELEASELarge scale experimental data released to enhance CO2 pipeline design safetyThe subject of CO2 transportation by pipeline is of increasing importance as many governments and communities worldwide come to terms with the challenges of carbon capture and storage (CCS) for the mitigation of climate change. The transportation aspect, is however, often looked upon as the ‘missing link’. The DNV GL led CO2PIPETRANS joint industry project (JIP) has just released a third batch of valuable experimental data that will greatly assist in the design process of CO2 pipelines.
