India’s Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited (ONGC) has moved 29 offshore drilling rigs to safe locations ahead of the Indian monsoon season.

Aqualis Offshore, marine and offshore engineering consultancy, said on Wednesday that it assisted with the large majority of the rig moves, which were conducted with the company’s specialist team of mariners in close cooperation with ONGC’s in-house rig move cell.

Each of the 29 rigs were placed at their respective monsoon locations before the onset of the seasonal adverse weather conditions.

ONGC’s underwriters and their respective contractors were Aqualis Offshore’s clients for the ONGC rig moving campaign. Under this agreement, Aqualis Offshore provides marine warranty services to ONGC’s fleet of jack-ups and mobile offshore production units in Indian waters.

Rodger Dickson, group marine director at Aqualis Offshore, said: “Moving close to thirty rigs more or less in parallel is a huge logistical challenge which was undertaken safely and on schedule.”

In recent company news, Aqualis appointed a new country manager in Qatar last week.
