Work on PRP 3 will start immediately and be completed by mid-2014, with the work to cover ONGC’s Mumbai High and Heera Oil and Gas fields off India's west coast.

The scope of work includes installation of 31 subsea pipeline segments, both rigid and flexible, of various diameters up to 16 inches and totalling approximately 200 kilometres in length, as well as associated pipeline risers, platform topsides modifications, hook-up activities and testing, the company said. The project is the fifth from ONGC to be awarded to Leighton Welspun, taking the value of all work awarded to the company to over 50 billion rupees. Leighton holds a 65% stake in the Leighton Welspun joint venture.
