Offshore staff

HØVIK, Norway – DNV has acquired oil spill preparedness company Norwegian Petro Services (NPS). DNV plans to open an office in Harstad, Norway, to provide advisory and verification services to the oil and gas industry with operations in the Arctic.

Knut Ørbeck-Nilssen, DNV’s COO of the Norway, Russia and Finland division, said: “Both the industry and society focus heavily on reducing the environmental effects of operations in Arctic areas such as the Barents Sea. DNV wants to contribute to this, and the acquisition of NPS is an important strategic move in that sense.

“We are now combining DNV’s environmental risk and oil spill preparedness analyses with NPS’s specialist expertise in planning and organizing oil spill preparedness. This provides a complete service portfolio to our customers.”
