Oceaneering Wins India Contract

Engineering service provider Oceaneering International has been awarded contracts by Baker Hughes, a GE company (BHGE), and partner in the consortium for Indian ONGC’s KG‑DWN 98/2 deepwater field development offshore India’s east coast, to supply subsea umbilical control systems, it said September 18.  

Oceaneering's scope comprises the subsea umbilical control systems to allow the production of gas from fields U and R, and oil from fields A, P, and M, the company said. 

The contract award includes design and manufacture of 44 electro-hydraulic control umbilicals, totalling approximately 73 miles (118 km) in length, delivered on a combination of reels and carousels.  Manufacture of the umbilicals is scheduled to occur at Oceaneering's facility in Rosyth, Scotland and is expected to commence in Q3 2019 and be completed in the Q1 2021. 

In March 2019, Oceaneering was awarded a separate contract to supply a subsea, steel tube control umbilical and associated hardware to facilitate early gas delivery for the project, which is anticipated in Q4 2019.  Manufacture of the umbilical measuring 8.2 miles (13.2 km) and associated hardware is in progress at Oceaneering's facility in Panama City, Florida, it said. 

According to ONGC, the project would cumulatively produce around 25mn mt of oil and 45bn m3 of gas with peak production of 78,000 b/d of oil and 15mn m3/d of gas.
