Cairn Oil awards Baker Hughes contract to develop oilfield

New Delhi, India; August 10, 2018
 
Baker Hughes (BHGE), a GE company, has been awarded a development contract by Cairn Oil & Gas, Vedanta Limited to construct approximately 300 new wells and deploy a chemical EOR (Enhanced Oil Recovery) program aimed at increasing production from the Rajasthan area. The project marks the largest integrated project for BHGE in India, expanding its presence in the country and supporting the government’s mission of reducing dependency on imports.
 
BHGE will provide an integrated scope of oilfield services and equipment, delivered in phases over the next 24 months to help Cairn Oil & Gas, Vedanta Limited unlock the significant untapped reserves in the Mangala, Bhagyam and Aishwariya (MBA) fields. This includes all associated technology and operations to develop new wells quickly and cost-efficiently, as well as solutions to enhance production from existing wells. The project is intended to be delivered in phases. 
 
To enhance recovery from existing wells, Baker Hughes is designing an alkaline-surfactant-polymer (ASP) flooding solution– the first of its kind in operation in India and one of the newest forms of chemical EOR in the industry today. BHGE’s scope includes developing the chemistry as well as constructing chemical recovery plants.
 
“By fast-tracking the operations of the MBA fields, our focus is on enhancing our productivity to support the nation’s energy needs. The decisive factor in awarding the contract was the competency of our partner in delivering solutions that enhance productivity and ensure cost efficiency. BHGE has been a long-term partner to Cairn and with this project we will strengthen our relationship further,” said Sudhir Mathur, CEO, Cairn Oil & Gas, Vedanta Limited.
 
Ashish Bhandari, CEO, India and South Asia for Baker Hughes, a GE Company, said, “This is a landmark agreement that underpins our leading technology position and the value of our fullstream portfolio. From reservoir modelling and well construction to chemical injection and facility construction, our advanced technology solutions aim to deliver unprecedented levels of productivity for our customers. This is an important, strategic project that supports the Indian government’s goals to reduce oil and gas imports, and to enhance domestic energy production to meet growing requirements.”
 
The project is anticipated to begin in the second half of 2018 and continue for three years. The work is expected to help build and support local supply chain partners and strengthen local workforce skills in the region.
