Australian engineering company WorleyParsons has been awarded a project management consultancy services contract on the R-Cluster field off India by Reliance Industries.
WorleyParsons said on Wednesday that the PMC contract with Reliance would see the company work in the Krishna Godavari basin off the East coast of India.
The field is located in water depths between 1,800 and 2,150 meters approximately 70 kilometers offshore.
The company added that the services would be led and executed by its Advisian Houston office.
“We are delighted that Reliance Industries has chosen WorleyParsons to provide PMC services for this project. We look forward to working with Reliance Industries to contribute to the development of India’s gas-based economy,” said Andrew Wood, CEO of WorleyParsons.
Reliance awarded several deals for work on the R-Cluster recently. Just last week, Reliance awarded an engineering, procurement, installation, and pre-commissioning deal of subsea flowlines, vent lines, and a pipeline-end manifold for connection with six subsea wells to McDermott.
The deal between the two companies included an option for five to seven more subsea wells on the S-Cluster, in addition to the six R-Cluster wells. The optional scope also consists of two additional subsea structures and flowlines at a water depth between 1,400 meters and 1,800 meters.
Reliance also awarded an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract to OneSubsea last month for the supply of a subsea production system at the field.
The scope of this deal includes trees, subsea manifolds, control system, tie-in system, multi-phase meters, intervention tooling, and test equipment for the R-Cluster.
The R-Cluster is one of three sets of discoveries in the offshore KG-D6 block that Reliance and oil major BP are working to bring online by 2021-22.
