Pipeline Engineers


Do you have a mechanics/structural background with an interest for Finite Element Analysis, programming, Vortex Induced Vibrations (VIV) or pipelines? Do you want to develop and apply your skills in an expanding team of world leading experts?

DNV GL Pipeline Team is strengthening our team delivering advisory, verification and technology development projects to the pipeline industry. 

Our team of 45 subsea pipeline engineers create and deliver world class services that range from early concept, through detailed design and operations, to decommissioning and abandonment. We are a competence center related to the full life cycle of offshore pipelines, and take on the role as expert, solutions provider and standard setter for our clients.

Pipelines are one of the fundamental parts in all subsea developments and gain high focus in the industry. We deliver certification, verification and technical advisory services related to pipelines covering design verification, technology qualification, integrity management including condition assessments and risk-based inspection planning, life extension studies, and repair systems. Our main market is the North Sea, but we get involved in projects all over the world, supporting our local offices and global clients.

We also invest heavily in research and development (R&D) in close co-operation with the industry, using our accumulated knowledge to develop tomorrow's standards and software products. Being serious about getting on board the digital train, we are currently working with several exciting concepts within digital services and we are leading within the digitalization of our services within Oil & Gas. Our aim is to maintain our role as a leading solutions provider for our clients in the digital future.
