Oil & Gas

Driving Efficiency for the long term

As our customers adapt to the new reality of “lower for longer” oil and gas prices and highly volatile world energy markets, we provide support by helping them to identify cost savings and still remain safe and sustainable for the long term.

Sustainable solutions

To maintain its investor appeal and social licence to operate, the oil and gas sector must meet international and national targets on climate change while continuing to provide affordable energy. DNV GL helps customers to meet this complex challenge.

Natural gas – an ideal partner for power generation

We see natural gas as an ideal partner for power generation from renewables and continued our longstanding practice of placing strategic importance on research and innovation on gas-related topics. 

This includes cost-efficient solutions for enhanced reliability up-, mid- and downstream. Together with customers, we run several joint industry projects related to the future for gas in the energy mix.

Global oil and gas resource map

We analysed the cost-effective CO2 abatement potential for installations offshore Norway, and launched a global resource map summarizing the regional environmental, social and economic impacts of exploiting oil and gas resources. Download our two new position papers for advice on how to reduce the environmental impact.

Providing expertise in CCS technology

We continued to provide expertise in carbon capture and storage (CCS) as a necessary technology to mitigate climate change. The Norwegian CLIMIT Programme and Australian Department of Industry, Innovation and Science awarded DNV GL and Energy Pipelines CRC just over NOK 40 million for a test programme to improve the safety and efficiency of CO2 pipelines.

First global guideline for hydrocarbon leak-detection

Together with partners, we also issued the first global guideline for hydrocarbon leak-detection systems offshore; produced guidance for designing cost-efficient, sensor-based environmental monitoring systems for offshore oil and gas; and showed how wind-powered water injection for enhanced oil recovery offshore can be clean, reliable and cost effective.
