Larsen & Toubro Wins Work from ONGC on Bassein Gas Field

Larsen & Toubro Limited (L&T) has secured a turnkey order valued at approximately Rs.1300 crores from the Oil & Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) for a major offshore project. L&T will execute the entire 'BCP-B2 Booster Compressor Platform' and deliver it within a stringent time frame of a little over two years.

To be located in the Bassein Gas field, approximately 80 km north-west of Mumbai, the booster compressor platform will rest on the seabed supported by a jacket structure. It will compress natural gas to a pressure of 60 kg/cm2, using turbine driven compressors. The new platform will be bridge-linked to ONGC's existing BCP-B platform.

It is a seventh in series of gas treatment and compression facilities delivered by L&T, making available to oil companies worldwide a strong capability for gas-flaring reduction, energy conservation and gas-reinjection projects.

L&T was awarded this prestigious order on the strength of its proven record in meeting offshore project requirements, including tight delivery schedules.

All critical structures for the project will be delivered from L&T's modular fabrication facility at Hazira. L&T has recently acquired over 100 acres of additional land for a rapid expansion of its complex at Hazira to meet the increasing demands from the oil & gas sector in India and abroad.

Earlier in November, L&T had won a turnkey project valued at Rs.1000 crores from ONGC for four new well-head platforms for Mumbai High North and Bassein fields.

Mr. K. Venkataramanan, Member of the Board & President (Engineering & Construction Projects), L&T, said, "The ONGC orders have come on the back of large contracts executed for international oil majors in the Gulf and Africa. The orders affirm L&T's turnkey project capabilities in the energy and hydrocarbon sector and its ability to execute technology intensive, world-scale projects in India and abroad."
