Optimising offshore combined operations manning 18 August 2017

The pressures faced by operators to maintain and enhance oil and gas producing installations can require significant scopes of work to be carried out.  Limited bed space often requires mobile accommodation units such as flotels or mobile offshore drilling units (MODUs) to accommodate additional workers.  In this article, Paul Murray of DNV GL Risk Advisory takes a look at the issues raised....

Global oil and gas: an evolving regulatory picture 18 February 2016

The oil and gas industry and its regulatory regimes are evolving. As operations break into new frontier territories, the challenge is to keep pace with trends, and tackle the demands of ultra-deep, more remote, harsher and environmentally sensitive areas. Such pioneering activity introduces new risks that need to be understood and managed. Regulations can help in ensuring that due attention is given to health, safety and environmental (HSE) performance....

New report highlights oil & gas industry split over cost management issues in face of downturn 04 February 2015

In the face of falling oil prices, confidence in the outlook for the oil & gas industry has dropped dramatically among sector professionals from 65% to 28% in the last three months, according to new research published by DNV GL. The pessimistic outlook is also reflected in capital expenditure (CAPEX) intentions, with those planning to increase CAPEX in the same period dropping from 40% to 12% and those planning to reduce headcount increasing from ...

Scotland could generate almost all its electricity with renewables by 2030 - report 16 January 2015

Scotland’s electricity system could be powered almost entirely by renewables by 2030 and without the need for any gas, coal or nuclear power stations in Scotland, according to a new report published in early January by WWF Scotland. The report claimed the renewable option could prove a cheaper and safer option than pursuing fossil fuel-based development....

A new enhanced oil recovery concept: wind powered water injection 14 August 2014

DNV GL is proposing a new concept that combines mature water injection technology with the newest developments in offshore wind power to achieve more cost effective Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR). Initial studies show it will reduce the cost of water injection, avoid costly topside modifications and reduce greenhouse gas emissions....

Utilities sailing into uncharted waters… What’s in store for the future grid? 20 June 2014

For decades, the electric utility business model in the US, with its trillion dollar assets, has been organised on the principles of centrally controlled generation and variable consumption. Generation was mostly delivered from coal or nuclear plants, with its product still treated mostly like a public service rather than a consumer product. This model is now increasingly under pressure from the convergence of flattening electricity demand, growth of green energy, cheap natural gas, distributed ...
