Offshore staff

KUALA LUMPUR – DNV GL has opened a new office in Malaysia. The official opening of the office coincided with the company’s celebration of a double milestone: 150 years of providing classification and technical assurance services and its first year as a newly merged company.

Elisabeth Tørstad, CEO of DNV GL Oil & Gas, said, "According to the OECD, growth in the Emerging Asian economies (Southeast Asia, China, and India) is expected to be a robust 6.9% for the 2014-18 period. Registering a 6.4% growth in 2Q 2014, Malaysia has a well-diversified economy, with major contributors coming from export-driven service and manufacturing industries, as well as the mining and agricultural sectors. The country is a key driver of offshore investments and is building substantial offshore infrastructure. Adopting strategies for sustainable development, the Malaysian government plans to develop an energy-efficient, diversified, and sustainable energy mix for the future – all of which offers a very positive outlook for DNV GL.”

DNV GL Malaysia moves its merged entities into its new Malaysian headquarters. The new offices will house DNV GL's four core business areas – Maritime, Oil & Gas, Energy, and Business Assurance.
