Kreuz Subsea to support L&T in subsea completion ops off India
- Business & Finance
Kreuz Subsea, a subsea services business, has been awarded a contract which will see the company mobilize five vessels to deliver subsea completion works for Indian multi-national conglomerate, Larsen & Toubro (L&T) from the start of 2018.
The contract, which is worth an undisclosed eight-figure sum, will see Kreuz Subsea supporting L&T to install all riser clamps, risers, crossing works, tie-ins, subsea trenching and hydro-testing of pipelines which are part of the Oil & Natural Gas Corporation’s (ONGC) Pipeline Replacement Project (PRP4) and Daman Field development projects off the west coast of India.
L&T won a contract to work on the Daman development project off India back in October 2017. The contract encompasses total engineering, procurement, construction, installation, and commissioning (EPCIC) work on the project.
The five Kreuz Subsea’s vessels to be utilized throughout the campaign in the Mumbai High and Daman fields in the Mumbai Offshore region, include the DP2 purpose-built SURF vessel, Kreuz Installer, and the diving support and construction work barge, Kreuz Supporter.
Kreuz Subsea chief executive officer, AJ Jain, said: “The waters of Daman field are known for experiencing very high tidal currents and near zero visibility. Being awarded this work to ultimately support ONGC in the region reaffirms our reputation for providing flexible, safe operations, dedicated and experienced personnel, as well as the ability to pass on great value to our clients.”
