DNV GL supports Dana Petroleum

DNV GL has been supporting Dana Petroleum on the development of the Western Isles field and the Western Isles floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel as it progressed towards first oil.

DNV GL has been engaged by Dana since 2012, as the classification society, verification body and marine warranty provider on the Western Isles FPSO, a Sevan Series 400 cylindrical monohull with a 44,000 bbl/d topsides facility. Uniquely, it is not only the first complete engineering procurement and construction (EPC) FPSO project constructed in China, but also the first offshore unit in China to comply with the UK continental shelf legislation requirements.

The multifaceted service provision included marine warranty services (MWS) and marine consultancy to Dana, for the transportation and installation of subsea infrastructure and the FPSO itself. This included the transportation of the vessel to Rotterdam in early 2017, onboard COSCO Shipping’s newbuild Heavy Lift Vessel Xin Guang Hua.
