Risk managers DNV GL are to provide third-party competency services for the massive Mariner North Sea project after agreeing a multi-million pound deal.
The firm, which has been working on the front end engineering for the project, will help provide independent competent person services for development of the field, around 150km east of Shetland.
The project – the largest offshore development in UK waters in more than a decade – will see around 55,000 barrels a day produced from the field. DNV GL will provide integrated third party verification, classification and consultancy work, with most of the work carried out from its London office.
“The commercial and technical support teams in the UK and Korea worked hard to explain to all the project stakeholders the role of ICP and Class in UK waters which was critical to securing the contract,” said DNV GL regional manager Hari Vamadevan.
“This project will continue to cement DNV GL’s position as the Verification and Classification Company for the North Sea, and open more opportunities for us in the future.”
