ONGC to overhaul more platforms offshore India

Offshore staff

NEW DELHI, India – ONGC plans a revamp of unmanned platforms on its Mumbai High, Neelam, and Heera assets offshore western India.

The BPA and BPB processing complexes serving the prolific Bassein field and satellite were commissioned respectively in 1987 and 1989. Both handle and process acidic and corrosive gas (with H2S) for onward delivery to the Hazira gas processing plant.  Their original design lives were each 25 years.

ONGC’s revamp proposal covers various fixed equipment and pipelines, with work due to be performed on BPB during 2013-2014 and on BPA in 2014-2015. 

In the Krishna Godavari basin offshore eastern India, the company has found gas and condensate with the Saveri # 1 well in NELP block KG-OSN-2004/1. The location is in the KG shallow offshore basin, 25 km (15.5 mi) south of Narsapur.

On test the well flowed gas from one interval and gas and condensate higher up from another interval. ONGC views this as a high-potential discovery, boosting volumes added from the Chandrika South and Alankari finds on the same block, with potential for a cluster development.
