Aker Kvaerner to Modify Indian Offshore Platforms

Larsen and Toubro has awarded Aker Kvaerner's engineering office in Mumbai a contract for modification of 59 offshore platforms under the Pipeline Replacement Project at the Bombay High offshore field. Work on the 110 thousand man-hour project will start immediately and will be completed within the next three years.

Aker Kvaerner Powergas India Pvt. Ltd, owned 49 percent by Aker Kvaerner, will provide design engineering services to Larsen & Toubro for the proposed platform modifications associated with the pipeline replacement project of Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Ltd (ONGC) at the Bombay High offshore field. The scope of work includes pre-engineering survey, detail engineering associated with the modification of 59 platforms and interface management.

This is the third oil and gas engineering assignment received from Larsen & Toubro in the past 15 months. Aker Kvaerner Powergas' current work on the nine wellhead platforms for ONGC and the Bunduq Gas Injection facility in Abu Dhabi are nearing completion.

Dr. Rama Iyer, Executive Chairman of Aker Kvaerner Powergas India Pvt Ltd, says "The repeat order from Larsen & Toubro once again demonstrates the high level of customer satisfaction for the quality of our services and our commitment to meet a challenging completion schedule."

The formation of the project taskforce is in progress and is expected to increase the workforce by an additional 50 personnel in the coming weeks.

Aker Kvaerner Powergas India, who employs a staff of 1,150 employees, continues to maintain its position as the leading engineering and construction company in India.
