The world’s growing demand for oil and gas requires safe and reliable offshore transportation events. As a result, DNV GL developed Standards for certification 2.7-1 “Offshore Containers” and, more recently, 2.7-3 “Portable Offshore Units” to address the unique conditions experienced in these events and the need for reliable supporting equipment (containers, baskets, skips, skids, etc.) DNV GL certified its 150,000th offshore container in accordance with 2.7-1 in 2013. Standard 2.7-3 for Portable Offshore Units is becoming equally as recognized in the industry.
