DNV GL will verify that the new infrastructure built for the BHP Trion project is compliant with local and global safety, as well as other requirements. The Verification Body and Classification contract specifies DNV GL, the leading independent expert in risk management and quality assurance, to participate in design review activities and site surveillance during construction, commissioning, and installation of the floating production unit (FPU).

DNV GL announced it has been awarded a multidisciplinary contract by BHP Billiton Petróleo Operaciones de México, S. De R.L. De C.V. (BHP) to provide classification, verification, and independent analysis of the Trion FPU. Located approx. 19 miles (35 kms) south of the U.S./Mexico border and approx. 112 miles (200 kms) from the Mexican coastline, the FPU will be installed in a water depth of approx. 8,200 feet (2,500 meters). BHP holds a 60% interest in the development and PEMEX a 40% interest.   

'The Trion oil field development is historic in the Mexican gulf and a milestone for all of us involved,' said Frank Ketelaars, Regional Manager, Americas, DNV GL - Oil & Gas. 'It is indeed a recognition of DNV GL for our competence in professionally executing mega projects of this scale internationally. DNV GL is honored to be the Classification Society involved in such a significant project, and we look forward to the growth of our partnership with BHP for years to come.'  

The contracted verification scope DNV GL will carry out includes full project compliance to the Mexican offshore regulations, NOMs (Official Mexican) standards and BHP’s safety case requirements. The scope of work also includes several independent analyses from DNV GL to be conducted during the front-end engineering design and detailed design phase of the project   

'I am delighted BHP has recognized that we possess the technical expertise and knowledge, particularly with respect to local regulatory requirements, to assure the safety and compliance for this deepwater project,' concluded? Ketelaars. 'We have worked with BHP on many different projects around the world and this contract win is a sign of the strength of our relationship with BHP in the Americas.'
