Joint industry projects (JIPs)

In collaboration with our customers, we run joint industry projects (JIPs) to develop new solutions, standards and recommended practices that add value by solving industry challenges.

Proposed JIPs:

Digitalization and automation

Metering and calibration data analytics for performance management

Get operational data ready for data analytics

Quality requirements for CO2 utilization

Shaping the future of intelligent data management

Gas in the energy transition

(Rules for) evaluating crankcase gas safety in CNG/LNG marine engines

Service life extension

Assessing the integrity of aged polymers

Expanding existing crack analyses to cover low-toughness materials

Roadmap for future of the gas transmission systems

Developing tools for valve integrity and lifetime management

Develop a Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion (MIC) database and models to predict corrosion in pipelines and integrate these into MARVTM

Large-diameter mooring chains OPB fatigue - initial scope


PILS phase (pipeline, umbilical, cable and flexibles lateral stability)

Determining the root causes of failure in low toughness carbon steel fittings, flanges and piping

SqualMoor JIP - phase 2

Equivalence-based integrated qualification of additive manufacturing process and parts

NORSOK Z-TI: Shaping the future of standards and requirements management

STRAIN - guideline for strain-based design

Requirements for replacing the system pressure test with alternative means

Efficient risk assessment during design

Other technical solutions

Low cycle fatigue performance of pipe girth welds in seawater with cathodic protection

Fastener acceptance tool: a knowledge integration approach

Developing an international standard for carbon fibre tensile armour for flexible risers

Extension of usage limits for corrosion resistant materials in pipelines

DNV GL starts phase II of project to examine the impact of phase-contamination on oil flow meters

Oslo, Norway, 17 September 2018: DNV GL is now starting phase II of a joint industry project (JIP) on single phase flow meters in phase-contaminated oil flow. Phase II of this JIP will focus on the influence of the oil fluid properties. This will involve testing different single phase flow metering technologies in oil/water liquid flow (WLR=0-100%) with small fractions of gas (GVF=0-40%, with a focus on the low range). The test matrix used will be jointly defined by DNV GL and the JIP participants and will utilize the capabilities of the DNV GL Multiphase Flow Laboratory in Groningen, The Netherlands.

Pipeline installation: DNV GL new JIP to unlock significant cost savings

Oslo, Norway, 3 May 2018: The design requirements of concrete coated pipelines are based on simple and general criteria created more than twenty years ago. As this does not meet the complex demands of today’s larger diameter pipelines operating in deeper and more challenging environments, DNV GL is launching the second phase of a joint industry project (JIP) to develop a design guideline that complements current pipeline codes and standards.

Industry's preferred pipeline standard gets update by DNV GL

ADIPEC - Abu Dhabi, UAE. The most used and recognized offshore pipeline standard in the world has been updated to reflect the latest pipeline research and developments by DNV GL, the quality assurance and risk management company, and other leading industry players. The standard, previously called DNV-OS-F101 is now renamed DNVGL-ST-F101. Around 65% of all new projects globally are designed according to the standard, first issued in 1976.

Large-scale dust explosion research underway by DNV GL and Gexcon

Dust explosion incidents are immediate releases of small particles (i.e. chemicals, metal dusts) in large volumes. Such incidents can have devastating effects both in terms of harm to people and the facilities involved. DNV GL and Gexcon have therefore joined together to seek partners in a collaborative project to investigate dust explosions at a larger scale and produce new guidelines for industry on how best to mitigate these events.
