Alex Imperial has taken over as DNV GL Oil & Gas’s regional manager for South America just as the company is creating a dedicated research unit in Brazil.
Mr Imperial recently left Singapore, where he was Director for DNV GL’s Deepwater Technology Centre, to take over DNV GL’s Oil & Gas Division in South America. Experience from his last position will benefit his new role as the new dedicated Research unit means that research will be one of the DNV GL’s focus areas in Brazil.
“With the vast pre-salt offshore developments ongoing and planned in Brazil, and other opportunities in South America, I’m delighted to have taken on this role in what is a very exciting time for both the region and DNV GL. We have a total of 130 local technical experts, but also draw on the deep and broad expertise of our 5,500 employees globally,” says Mr Imperial.
