Further, the contract shows Hess’s confidence in DNV GL’s ability to deliver efficient solutions, which can help manage operation costs for the South Arne field,” said Kjell Eriksson, Regional Manager for Norway, DNV GL – Oil & Gas.

The contract has an estimated annual value of 10 million DKK and is based on KPI, lump sum and rate-based remuneration principles.
