DNV GL is now looking for a Head of Field Development & Operations to lead a newly-established Section in Stavanger.

Operators on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS) continue to invest substantially, both in new field developments and existing assets in operation, to grow cashflow and strengthen profitability. DNV GL’s role is to be a technical- and risk advisory expert partner, helping customers to succeed in reaching their business targets, without compromising safety for people and the environment. Tie-back projects and use of existing infrastructure will be a major part of activity on the NCS, going forward. DNV GL is already involved in most tie-back projects run by small- and mid-sized operators and has a clear ambition to increase our involvement, based on a strengthening of our local presence

In total, we have 150 employees in Stavanger, with 70 of these working within advisory- & verification services to the Oil & Gas industry. The mandate of the Field Development & Operations Section is to help Oil & Gas customers succeed with their development projects and optimise their operations. The Section will hold a strong domain expertise related to offshore development projects, subsea tie-backs, modification projects and operation of offshore assets - drawing, where necessary, on technical expertise in other DNV GL units.

In addition, the Section will build dedicated expertise and capacity within;

  • Project- & Operations Risk Management
  • Quality- & HSE Management
  • Maintenance & Integrity Management
  • Regulations & Compliance
  • Facilitation of Processes & Workshops

Currently, the Section comprises 10 experienced consultants, with the aim to grow further in 2019. The Section will draw upon relevant technical expertise and cooperate closely with other units in DNV GL Oil & Gas Region Norway - today consisting of 450 engineers within all major facility and operational disciplines. The Head of Section (HoS) will report to the Head of Department for Subsea & Asset Risk Management for Region Norway.
