DNV GL Secures 5-Year North Sea Verification Contract

DNV GL has been awarded a 5 year contract to provide in-service verification work for Wintershall Noordzee B.V.’s (WINZ) RAVN and A6-A platforms, which are located in the North Sea.

The unmanned RAVN is in the Danish sector of the North Sea with the manned A6-A situated in the German region. RAVN is the first field in Denmark that Wintershall Noordzee will transition to the production phase as operator. The A6-A platform is undergoing a “major overhaul”, according to DNV GL, with WINZ extending it to include an oil processing plant alongside the current gas condensate facilities. 

DNV GL’s scope of work will cover the Independent Verification of Management of Safety and Environmentally Critical Elements (SECE’s). This will include independent verification activities as detailed in the Written Scheme of Verification for RAVN and the A6-A instalations. This involves a combination of onshore review of assurance records (i.e. certification, maintenance activities and integrity management activities), physical survey and witness of offshore/site activities. The main focus will be on the onshore review activities with a tailored offshore scope. 

The work undertaken will be based on new EU Directive (2013/30/EU) on Safety of Offshore Oil and Gas Operations which aims to reduce the risk of major accidents associated with offshore oil and gas operations.

“We are very excited to have won this contract with Wintershall Noordzee and begin the work on these platforms,” said Ben Oudman, director and country manager for the Netherlands for DNV GL - Oil & Gas.
