One of India’s leading marine service providers, OCS Services Pvt. Ltd (OCS), has awarded Fugro a two year contract to support its asset integrity and corrosion management operations off the west coast of India.
Fugro has establish a reputation for offshore operational excellence and has cultivated a successful track record in India, both of which were taken into account when the contract was awarded. Fugro will help OCS deliver on ONGC’s Protective Coating of Process Platform Project 1 (PCPP1), an infrastructure project to maintain and refurbish 32 offshore platforms in 7 clusters.
For the first time in India, Fugro will provide survey Geo-data and positioning via remote support solutions controlled from one of its state-of-the-art remote operations centres (ROC). Fugro’s integrated digital solutions will allow OCS to identify debris, seabed features, and subsea pipelines and structures near Process Platform areas to protect the marine environment from future damage.
Remote support will also enable OCS to monitor their operations in real-time and thus enable early decision-making as the project progresses.
Sangram Dhote, Director at OCS, commented, “This collaborative approach will set a new standard to managing the safety of operations in the Mumbai High Field.”
Swaminathan Subramanian, Marine Asset Integrity Manager for Fugro in India, added, “We are very excited to be awarded this contract and are looking forward to collaborating with OCS on a successful project delivery that benefits from Fugro’s remote operations expertise and the highest safety standards.”
The project is expected to be completed by May 2023.
