India rigs relocated prior to monsoon
ONGC has successfully mobilized 29 offshore drilling rigs prior to the start of India’s monsoon season.
Aqualis Offshore assisted most of the rig moves, with company’s team of mariners working in co-operation with ONGC’s rig move cell.
All the rigs are now on station at their respective monsoon locations.
Aqualis Offshore provides marine warranty services to ONGC’s fleet of jackups and mobile offshore production units in Indian waters.
Rodger Dickson, Group Marine Director, said: “Moving close to 30 rigs more or less in parallel is a huge logistical challenge which was undertaken safely and on schedule.”
