Drawing on more than 150 years of risk management expertise, and more than 40 years of experience identifying risk and working to improve safety on offshore installations, DNV GL is uniquely positioned to support the industry with targeted best practice and specialized expertise for Directive compliance:

  • In the aftermath of Macondo, we were commissioned by the US Department of the Interior to provide a forensic examination of the blow-out preventer (BOP) recovered from the seafloor, and to deliver detailed recommendations on BOP design and operational issues.
  • We have a long track record of working with the UK Offshore Safety Case regime, which inspired the requirements of the Directive.
  • Combining our risk management methodology with lessons learned across the industry post-Macondo, we developed the recommended practice DNVGL-RP-G104 'Identification and management of environmental barriers' specifically to enable operators and owners to identify and manage MEIs and SECEs for offshore installations in line with Directive requirements.
