Larsen & Toubro’s Hydrocarbon vertical (L&T Energy) will perform engineering, procurement, construction, installation, and commissioning of four wellhead platforms, a 140-kilometer pipeline, and associated topside modifications for Daman Upside Development Project-Wellhead Platforms & Pipelines (DUDP-WP), off India’s west coast.

Subramanian Sarma, Whole-time Director and President (Energy) at L&T said: “This order demonstrates ONGC’s confidence in L&T forged through execution of multiple complex offshore projects and also reinforces L&T’s commitment to contribute towards India’s energy security.”

In another statement, the Indian firm announced it had also received an order from ONGC for the eighth phase of a pipeline replacement project, under which it will engineer, procure, construct, install and commission 129-kilometer subsea pipelines across India’s west coast offshore fields.

Larsen & Toubro defines “large” contracts as those worth between 25 billion Indian rupees and 50 billion rupees (between circa $299.6 million and $599.2 million).
