Kreuz Subsea and consortium partner Seamec have mobilized the Kreuz Glorious vessel to start a two-year project with India’s Oil & Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC).
The scope of work includes the inspection of 27 offshore jackets in the Mumbai High North, Mumbai High South, Heera, Neelam and Bassien assets, located off the coast of Mumbai in the Arabian Sea.
The construction work barge is specifically designed to work around complex jackets which are often inaccessible by more traditionally utilised DP2 diving vessels. The Kreuz Glorious has a 1,200m2 deck area, accommodation for 304 people and an eight-point mooring system.
The campaign will see 50 personnel from Kreuz supporting in project management roles as well as performing offshore construction tasks.
AJ Jain, CEO of Kreuz Subsea, said: “While we have supported ONGC for several years as a subcontractor, this project marks the first direct contract we have secured with the company. The award is a testament to our experienced teams which continue to provide high-quality services across our global operations.”
