McDermott delivers ONGC's U-Field gas project
US engineering firm McDermott on March 23 said it had delivered a gas field, known as the U-Field, for Indian state-owned oil and gas producer ONGC's KG-DWN 98/2 Block project in the Bay of Bengal.
According to McDermott, ONGC's KG-DWN 98/2 Block project, located off the east coast of India, is the largest and one of the most complex subsea projects in the Asia Pacific, involving major subsea infrastructure installation in ultra-deepwater.
McDermott is delivering two gas systems for ONGC's gas fields—U-Field and R-Field. The project is being executed in a consortium, with Larsen & Toubro Hydrocarbon Engineering (L&T HE) manufacturing the structures in India.
"The opening of the U1-B (GX-06) well in the DWN-98/2 block is a major milestone that we can all be immensely proud of," said Subramanian Sarma, CEO of L&T HE. The U-Field is now connected to ONGC's Vashishtha subsea infrastructure.
This is the fourth gas production milestone McDermott has delivered on the east coast of India in the last 18 months.
