Hallin Marine, a Superior Energy Services company, reported the start of a new subsea field development project for Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Ltd. (ONGC) in the Bay of Bengal offshore India working in support of Subsea 7. The project began in March and is expected to take three months. It is located in the G1 deepwater region of the highly productive G1-GS15 offshore production field.
India has, after China, the second-largest proven oil reserves in the Asia-Pacific region. Most of India’s crude oil reserves are located around the western coast and in the northeastern parts of the country. Considerable reserves are located in the offshore Bay of Bengal and these are now being developed.
“Return business is always a great vote of confidence for any service-provider, particularly in the oil and gas sector where the ability to work safely and efficiently in unpredictable operating conditions is essential,” says Phil Chamberlain, Hallin‘s director – Service Delivery. “Having completed Campaign 2 in 2013 successfully, on time and within budget, we are naturally very pleased to have been selected by Subsea 7 to support Campaign 3.”
