17 September 2018 | Oil & Gas | PRESS RELEASEDNV GL starts phase II of project to examine the impact of phase-contamination on oil flow metersOslo, Norway, 17 September 2018: DNV GL is now starting phase II of a joint industry project (JIP) on single phase flow meters in phase-contaminated oil flow. Phase II of this JIP will focus on the influence of the oil fluid properties. This will involve testing different single phase flow metering technologies in oil/water liquid flow (WLR=0-100%) with small fractions of gas (GVF=0-40%, with a focus on the low range). The test matrix used will be jointly defined by DNV GL and the JIP participants and will utilize the capabilities of the DNV GL Multiphase Flow Laboratory in Groningen, The Netherlands.
03 May 2018 | Oil & Gas | PRESS RELEASEPipeline installation: DNV GL new JIP to unlock significant cost savingsOslo, Norway, 3 May 2018: The design requirements of concrete coated pipelines are based on simple and general criteria created more than twenty years ago. As this does not meet the complex demands of today’s larger diameter pipelines operating in deeper and more challenging environments, DNV GL is launching the second phase of a joint industry project (JIP) to develop a design guideline that complements current pipeline codes and standards.
