Boots & Coots Bags Secure and Salvage Project in India
Boots & Coots has been awarded a new secure and salvage project under its Safeguard contract with the Oil and Natural Gas Corporation of India (ONGC). The operation consists of recovering a subsea blowout preventer (BOP) stack in approximately 740 feet of water under 6000
psi of pressure.
"We are very excited to work with ONGC again after our successful secure and salvage operation last year," said Jerry Winchester, president and chief executive officer of Boots & Coots. "We appreciate the trust ONGC has shown by awarding us this opportunity and we look forward to continuing to solidify a long relationship as we work together on this and other projects."
Boots & Coots plans to mobilize for this project around mid-January with approximately 55 days to reach the job location, giving the project a projected start date of March. In 2008 Boots & Coots completed a similar secure and salvage project for ONGC. The five-year Safeguard contract under which these projects have been awarded is for training, inspection and blowout control for ONGC’s 28 offshore rigs and 94 land rigs. The contract also allows Boots & Coots to work on special projects for ONGC, both in and outside India.
