GE Bags ONGC Wellhead Deal

GE Oil & Gas has been awarded a multi-million dollar frame agreement by Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited (ONGC).

Under the agreement, GE will provide an estimated 55 subsea wellheads over next three years for the operator’s offshore drilling campaign, in shallow to medium waters offshore India.

Ashish Bhandari, CEO-South Asia at GE Oil & Gas, said: “With India’s new energy policy and gas pricing policy in place we are seeing an uptick in ONGC’s exploration and development activity. This latest award will enable GE to support ONGC as its technical partner, collaborating to improve the region’s energy supply capabilities through the discovery of new fields offshore.”

The first wellhead under the contract will be supplied in Q4 2016, with GE manufacturing part of the scope in India for the first time, in Kakinada, with engineering and project management support from regional teams in Singapore.

This deal follows a contract awarded to GE Oil & Gas last year, for the supply of subsea production systems to ONGC’s Vashishta (VA) and S-1 fields, located off India’s Amalapuram coast in the KG Basin.
