Leighton Welspun has been awarded its fifth project by India’s Oil & Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC), taking the value of the total work awarded to the Company by ONGC to more than INR 5000 Crore (AUD$914 Million) over the past 5 years. The 1400 Crore (AUD$256 Million) Pipeline Replacement Project 3 (PRP3) follows on from the very successful completion by Leighton Welspun of the Pipeline Replacement Project 2 (PRP2) in 2011.

PRP3 covers works in ONGC’s Mumbai High and Heera Oil and Gas fields off India’s west coast. The scope of work includes installation of 31 subsea pipeline segments, both rigid and flexible, of various diameters up to 16″ and totalling approximately 200kms in length, as well as associated pipeline risers, platform topsides modifications, hook-up activities and testing.

Much of the production and transportation infrastructure at Mumbai High was installed in the 1980’s. To assure asset integrity, ONGC has been progressively implementing a replacement program. The new pipelines will help ONGC extend field life and enhance production and operational safety.

With many offshore fields worldwide having key infrastructure approaching the end of its design life, there is significant growth potential in this sector. PRP3 builds on Leighton Welspun’s core strength in offshore oil and gas construction, and along with the successfully completed PRP2 and Water Injection North Platform Revamp projects, cements the Company’s position as a leader in offshore replacement and revamp projects.

Work on PRP 3 commences immediately and will be completed by mid-2014.

Leighton Asia, India and Offshore Managing Director, Ian Edwards said “Leighton has built a substantial offshore oil and gas capability over a number of years. The award of PRP3 is a testament to the strength of that capability, and to our reputation for successfully delivering projects on time, and to the highest standards of quality and safety. The award of PRP3 aligns well with the Group’s strategic initiatives to expand its business in the oil and gas sector and to continue to build its international presence.”

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
