Oil & Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) has awarded a project order with Larsen & Toubro Ltd (L&T) for the NQ re-construction (NQRC) Project in Mumbai High North fields, according to Domain-b.
According to the report, this project is the largest brownfield project of its kind awarded in the offshore oil and gas sector in India. The NQ Complex, one of the oldest assets owned by ONGC, has been operational since 1985.
The project comprises reconstruction of offshore facilities at the NQ Complex including the replacement of the existing booster compressor with a new process gas compressor module, revamp of produced water conditioning system, hot oil system, gas dehydration unit and other utilities.
Kawasaki Heavy Industries
(KHI), Japan, will supply the turbo-machinery for the process gas compressor module, which will will be fabricated and delivered from L&T's modular fabrication facility at Hazira. The project calls for substantial quantum of offshore works, with an "in-the-sea" campaign spanning over 300 days in Mumbai High.
