Classification society DNV GL has released an updated version of its bulk liquefaction guideline at the Nor-Shipping trade fair this week.

The first week of December, The Institute of Energy Technology gathered some of the world’s leading researchers and project leaders in decommissioning at Lillehammer. Up to 90,000 will work directly or indirectly with decommissioning over the next decade. Their experiences must be shared with others, and the professional communities have to come to terms with each other on best practices.
