DNV GL has been recognised by the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) as the organisation that has contributed most to asset integrity in the Middle East at the 2014 SPE Asset Integrity Workshop entitled “Changing the Culture, Raising the Bar” held on 13th - 14th May in Abu Dhabi.
“It is a great honor and a privilege to have been given this SPE award for the best ‘Company Contribution to Asset Integrity in the Middle East’. Asset Integrity is in the DNA of DNV GL, and this award is proof of our Middle East team’s dedication to integrity excellence” said Moss Daemi, DNV GL’s Divisional Director for Middle East, North Africa and India.
With the objective of “raising the bar” in Asset Integrity Management in the Middle East, the SPE Steering Committee has set up the awards to recognise companies and individuals who have achieved an outstanding level of asset integrity performance. The winners were assessed by a panel comprising all ADNOC Group companies and prominent organisations in the region including Saudi Aramco, Kuwait Oil Company, PDO and Dubai Petroleum.
“DNV GL was chosen by the Steering Committee based on its exemplary work in the Middle East in the area of Asset Integrity Management. DNV GL has distinguished itself through its high standards and uncompromising attention to quality,” said Akram Elbadiich of National Drilling Company in the citation of the award to DNV GL.
