OSLO, NorwayONGC has, with the support of Aqualis Offshore, set a new pre-monsoon rig move record offshore India.

The company executed 33 mobile offshore drilling unit (MODU) 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 rig moves, placing each on its respective monsoon location before the onset of the seasonal adverse weather conditions.

It carried out this work with the help of mariners from the company’s Dubai office and with engineering support from London.

Rodger Dickson, group marine director, Aqualis Offshore, said: “This is an impressive milestone in Indian offshore operations and is a tribute to the professionalism of all involved.”

In May, United India Insurance Co. reappointedAqualis Offshore to provide marine warranty services to ONGC assets offshore India.
