MUMBAI – ONGC has contracted Larsen & Toubro (L&T) for new forms and process modules for its Mumbai High North (MHN) project off western India.

Under the $1.1-billion turnkey contract, L&T will survey, engineer, procure, fabricate, install, and commission process, living quarters and twin-flare platforms, all connected by bridges. It will also supply three compression modules – in total, over 80,000 metric tons (88,185 tons) of structures.

The MHN process platform will handle much of the hydrocarbons produced from the MHN field, hosting gas-lift and oil export pipelines. It is designed to replace the former BHN platform, and will create additional facilities for processing gas from future platforms.

Its well-fluid processing capacity will be 23,877 b/d of oil and 2.56 MMcf/d of gas.

L&T beat off bids from Hyundai, Samsung, NPCC and other yards to secure this order, which should be completed within 33 months. The company has previously executed more than 20 offshore projects for ONGC and other international companies.
