ABERDEEN-- BJ Services has completed a contract to provide pre-commissioning services for Technip on the MA-D6 oilfield development in the Krishna Godavari basin in the Bay of Bengal, India.

BJ’s scope of work included initial engineering and project management services. Hydraulic and electrical testing of both dynamic and infield umbilicals was carried out during pre-installation, installation, overboarding, and post-installation phases of the operation. BJ’s pipeline pre-commissioning specialists carried out cleaning, flooding, and pressure testing of the 8-in. (20-cm) production infield flowlines. In addition, the 6-in. (15-cm) gas injection riser was cleaned, flooded, pressure-tested, and treated with mono ethylene glycol (MEG).

The MA-D6 is part of the larger KG-D6 oil and gas field that is situated in water depths of up to 1,200 m (3,937 ft.). The pipeline network gathers oil and gas from the Krishna Godavari basin for export onshore to India.
