ONGC matches its pre-monsoon rig move record

India’s Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited (ONGC), with the support of Aqualis Offshore, has matched its pre-monsoon rig move record set last year offshore India.

The marine and offshore engineering consultancy firm Aqualis said that the ONGC executed a total of 33 jack-up rig moves in April, May, and June this year.

Most the rigs were located on the west coast of India with one jack-up on the east coast. Aqualis Offshore, working together with the ONGC Rigmove cell, assisted with most of these moves, placing each rig on its respective monsoon location before the onset of the seasonal adverse weather conditions.

Aqualis Offshore carried out the work with mariners from the company’s Dubai office and with engineering support from London, UK.

Rodger Dickson, Group marine director at Aqualis Offshore, said: “Last year I commented that ONGC’s pre-monsoon rig move was an impressive milestone in Indian offshore operations. This year’s achievement is just as remarkable. It is a huge logistics challenge that has been solved safely and effectively by everyone involved.”

 

Contract extension

 

In May this year, following last year’s rig moving campaigns, United India Insurance Company again reappointed Aqualis to provide marine warranty services to ONGC’s assets offshore India. This is the fourth one-year contract since the company first started working for the United India Insurance Company and ONGC in 2014.

Under the agreement, Aqualis Offshore will continue to provide marine warranty services to ONGC’s fleet of jack-up rigs and mobile offshore production units (MOPU) in Indian waters.
