A Breakthrough in Deepwater Projects
Mumbai, January 07, 2016: L&T Hydrocarbon Engineering (LTHE), a fully owned subsidiary of Larsen & Toubro, in consortium with McDermott has bagged an offshore contract from Oil & Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) valued at 364.31 USD Mn (` 2450 Crores) for the development of its Vashishta and S1 deepwater fields situated off the East Coast of India. LTHE’s share in the consortium is ` 640 Crores.
The prestigious contract has been won against competitive international bidding, and encompasses complete ‘EPCI’ work – Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Installation of major subsea facilities in ONGC’s Deepwater fields.
