DNV GL updates marine warranty standard to improve the industry’s management of marine operations

DNV GL Noble Denton marine services have released a new edition of the ST-N001 Marine operations and marine warranty standard, the industry’s most comprehensive standard for the warranty approval of marine operations, covering all different asset and operation types.

The new edition now includes a completely revised section for marine operations involving pipelines, risers, jumpers, umbilicals and submarine cables. In addition, the updated standard provides the latest requirements and guidance for marine warranty based on DNV GL’s extensive experience, including the deep knowledge from the legacy DNV, GL and Noble Denton organisations. Following the marine standard and its guidance will support project risk control and provide assurance to stakeholders and underwriters.

The standard is now available to purchase through the DNV GL digital platform Veracity where the user can select either a project-specific abstract or access the complete standard.

Michiel van der Geest, Global Service Area Leader Noble Denton Marine Services, DNV GL – Oil & Gas stated “We’ve improved the functionality of the application by including Interpretations and Clarifications. This will provide users with an up-to-date overview based on inquiries and operational use, further supporting understanding of the standard and increasing project efficiency.”

Liv A. Hovem, CEO, DNV GL - Oil & Gas highlighted that “Having set best practice in marine warranty for more than 50 years and with this unique standard in the industry, we help our customers go beyond compliance. This new edition incorporating feedback and input from our customers shows that we continue to invest in supporting our ambition to further improve operations for the industry.”
