DNV has acquired oil spill preparedness company Norwegian Petro Services (NPS).

“The acquisition of NPS in Norway and its recognised expertise will play an important role in our activities in this field,” said Knut Ørbeck-Nilssen, DNV’s COO for Norway, Russia and Finland.

“NPS, which consists of five professionals, will give us operational expertise that is important to the oil companies when planning and training for oil-spill preparedness.

"We will now establish a robust local organisation in the north of Norway, based in Harstad. In addition to the new portfolio of oil-spill preparedness advisory services, DNV will provide advisory and verification services to the oil and gas industry. The new office will supplement our existing maritime industry activities in Harstad,” he said.
