Companies across the gas value chain are pushing traditional boundaries to innovation in the sector, supported by technological improvements, emerging geographies for both demand and supply, and a growing preference for low-carbon energy sources.
Increasingly, they are looking for robust solutions to their project and operational challenges, and support in overcoming the risks involved with asset design, development and operation.
Backed by 150 years of experience and a global team of more than 5,500 oil and gas experts, DNV GL works in partnership with operators, suppliers, governments and industry associations to support progress across the entire gas value chain.
At every stage of the asset lifecycle, our purpose is to safeguard life, property and the environment. We have a long heritage in advising customers on project development, operational excellence and energy sustainability.
Our ongoing investment into research and innovation is driven by our company-wide commitment to ensure asset safety, reliability and performance on behalf of our customers.
As a safe and low-carbon alternative to traditional energy sources, liquefied natural gas (LNG) has risen rapidly up the agenda of gas operators in recent years. With a number of important LNG mega projects underway in countries such as Australia, innovative technologies and targeted support are necessary if operators are to close the remaining gaps in the supply chain from the borehole to the consumer.
Unconventional gas has dramatically shaken up the energy sector in recent years. Advanced tools and technologies have enabled operators to access important and vast new sources of gas supply. However, as the industry continues to develop new techniques and technologies to access these important sources of energy, it will also need to overcome environmental concerns, and many geological, technical as well as economic barriers to growth.
We work in partnership with our customers to ensure the safety, reliability and performance of their gas assets once they become operational. Drawing on a rich heritage in gas processing and transportation within many international markets, we translate asset management policy into operational practice. We are proud to have developed some of the industry’s most successful systems and software to optimise asset energy use, production, reliability and processing.
Gas: Energy of the future
The rapid expansion of the LNG industry and the rise in unconventional gas production have revolutionised the gas sector in recent years, bolstering gas supply prospects and transforming the natural gas market. From conventional natural gas discoveries to unconventional sources, such as shale gas, coal bed methane and biogas, the hydrocarbon is set to play a vital role in the global energy mix for decades to come.
