India’s Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) has, with the support of Aqualis Offshore, set a new pre-monsoon rig move record offshore India. ONGC executed a total of 33 mobile offshore drilling unit rig moves—31 on the west coast and two on the east coast—in mid-March, April and May. Aqualis Offshore, working together with the ONGC Rigmove cell, assisted with nearly all of these moves, placing each on its respective monsoon location before the onset of the seasonal adverse weather conditions.
Aqualis Offshore carried out this work with the help of mariners from the company’s Dubai office and with engineering support from London. “This is an impressive milestone in Indian offshore operations and is a tribute to the professionalism of all involved,” said Rodger Dickson, group marine director, Aqualis Offshore.
