Russian Plant Commissions Deep Probe Seismic Ship

Thursday, October 04, 2007
A Russian shipbuilding plant in Komsomolsk-on-Amur has commissioned a deep probe seismic ship built on the order of the Indian Oil Corporation (IOC). The ship intended for oil and gas prospecting at the depth of around 4,000 meters was built within two years as stipulated in the Indian contract, officials of the Amur Shipbuilding Plant indicated. The giant ship -- 94 meters long and 19 meters wide -- has been built in accordance with the international standards, they said. The ship will be sent to the Maritime territory where it will be given a few finishing touches at a terminal constructing base. After tests, the Russian ship builders are planning to turn over the ship to the Indian customers by the year's end. [Source: http://www.hindu.com]
