MUMBAI, INDIA: Technip, in a consortium with AFCONS Infrastructure Ltd and TH Heavy Engineering Berhad, was awarded a contract by Oil & Natural Gas Corporation Ltd (ONGC), worth approximately €220 million, for the Heera Redevelopment (HRD) process platform project in the Arabian Sea, at approximately 70 kilometre South-West of Mumbai, India. Technip’s operating centre in Mumbai, India will execute the overall engineering and procurement of tagged equipment of the project. The project is scheduled to be completed in the first semester of 2015.

The scope of work covers the engineering, procurement, fabrication, transportation, installation, hook-up and commissioning of the HRD process platform, shifting of the existing cable in the seabed, installation of a new bridge connecting the existing HRC process platform, strengthening of the existing bridge and the modification on an existing HRC process platform to ensure interconnections between all the process lines and the utilities.

“We are very proud that ONGC chose our consortium for this important project. Technip is a world leader in float-over operations, for the installation of large topside decks onto fixed or floating platforms. As such, we will utilize our proprietary float-over installation technology for this project. This award is the first offshore project on EPCIC basis for Technip in India. It will also be one of the rare float-over installations in the Indian Ocean,” said Samik Mukherjee, Country Manager and Vice President, Technip India.
