Hallin Marine has announced the start of a new subsea field development project in the Bay of Bengal working in support of Subsea 7. The project began in March and is expected to take three months. It is located in the G1 deepwater region of the highly productive G1-GS15 offshore production field.

India has, after China, the second-largest proven oil reserves in the Asia-Pacific region. Most of India’s crude oil reserves are located around the western coast and in the northeastern parts of the country. Considerable reserves are located in the offshore Bay of Bengal and these are now being developed.

“Return business is always a great vote of confidence for any service-provider, particularly in the oil and gas sector where the ability to work safely and efficiently in unpredictable operating conditions is essential,” says Phil Chamberlain, Hallin‘s director of service delivery. “Having completed Campaign 2 in 2013 successfully, on time and within budget, we are naturally very pleased to have been selected by Subsea 7 to support Campaign 3.”

Hallin will be providing the subsea operations vessel Ullswater with survey, air diving, and marine crews with Subsea 7 providing flexible and umbilical laying equipment and construction crew.

“It is a pleasure to be working with Hallin Marine again,” says Jean Legrux, vice president of projects and operations, Asia Pacific and Middle East at Subsea 7. “This is repeat business for Subsea 7 and Hallin which reflects the trust afforded by Subsea 7 as a result of our successful operation and cooperation on ONGC’s behalf during 2013. We look forward to a safe and successful completion of Campaign 3.”
