Ho Chi Minh City will consolidate the operations of the firm’s three business areas—maritime, oil & gas and business assurance—under one roof.  The open concept office will foster closer collaboration and working efficiencies between the employees of both DNV and GL which merged in September last year.

“We currently have 60 employees in Vung Tau and Ho Chi Minh who are mostly Vietnamese nationals, and we plan to employ and develop more local expertise in Vietnam,” Madsen said.  

Rising demand for energy has prompted Vietnam to focus on exploration in deeper water reserves that requires high level of technologies. The country also needs large amounts of gas to cover future energy demands. Some of this gas can be extracted from the Vietnamese continental shelf. 

“With more than 40 years of experience in offshore and deepwater technology, DNV GL is ready to support Vietnam’s offshore field developments in applying technological innovations and practices.  Furthermore, we launched the deepwater technology center, a competence center in Singapore in 2012 to support the oil & gas industry in the region,” Madsen said.

DNV GL is also looking into venturing into new areas such as electricity and gas power with the authorities and industrial players in Vietnam.
