A new study about crucial risk management issues relating to Arctic operations is released by DNV and the Fridtjof Nansen Institute (FNI). This concludes that, in order to safely develop Arctic resources, there is a need for improved technology, oil spill preparedness and close cooperation between the authorities, industry and society. DNV’s CEO, Dr Henrik O. Madsen, will present the study entitled ‘Energy and the environment – Arctic resource development, risks and responsible management’ at the Offshore Northern Seas (ONS) Conference in Stavanger on Wednesday.
On behalf of the ONS Foundation, DNV and FNI were asked to produce this study as a basis for discussions between the authorities and industry at the ONS summit and conference. On Wednesday, 29 August, at 11:15 am, DNV’s CEO Dr Henrik O. Madsen will discuss the study’s findings concerning international conflicts, institutional architecture, environmental challenges, resources and regulations relating to fishery, shipping and petroleum activities and finally concerning risk management in the Arctic.
