November 23, 2015 | Oil & Gas | PRESS RELEASEDNV GL conducts largest ever controlled release of CO2 from an underwater pipelineCarbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) is gaining momentum to meet stringent climate change goals and secure energy supplies for the future. To fully understand the environmental and safety implications associated with the development of CO2 pipelines, DNV GL is conducting the oil and gas industry’s largest ever controlled release of carbon dioxide from an underwater pipeline at its full-scale Spadeadam Testing and Research Centre, located in Cumbria, UK.
November 19, 2015 | Oil & Gas | Rules and standards | PRESS RELEASEDNV GL guidance on inspection planning of offshore structures will save operational costsThe low oil price and a reduction in newbuilds have driven the integrity of existing assets up the agenda for the oil & gas industry. However, the cost of inspection programmes can be significant, adding to the operational costs. DNV GL has now launched a recommended practice (DNVGL-RP-C210) providing the first international guidance on how to establish a sound basis for in-service inspection planning for fatigue cracks in marine structures. The guidance will save operational costs by using a risk-based approach to identify the ‘hot spots’ requiring inspection.
