Kreuz Subsea said on Jan. 9 it has been awarded its most financially significant contract in the company’s history.

It will see the independent firm mobilize five vessels to deliver subsea completion works for Indian multi-national conglomerate, Larsen & Toubro Ltd. from the start of 2018.

The contract, which is worth an undisclosed eight-figure sum, will see Kreuz Subsea supporting LT to install all riser clamps, risers, crossing works, tie-ins, subsea trenching and hydro-testing of pipelines which are part of the Oil & Natural Gas Corp.’s (ONGC) pipeline replacement project (PRP4) and Daman Field development projects off the west coast of India.

The five vessels to be utilized throughout the campaign in the Mumbai High and Daman fields in the Mumbai Offshore region including the DP2 purpose-built SURF vessel, Kreuz Installer, and the diving support and construction work barge, Kreuz Supporter.

“Securing a contract of this size and with a major company like LT is a fantastic achievement for the whole team at Kreuz and sets a record in the company’s history,” AJ Jain, Kreuz Subsea’s CEO, said.

“The waters of Daman Field are known for experiencing very high tidal currents and near zero visibility. Being awarded this work to ultimately support ONGC in the region reaffirms our reputation for providing flexible, safe operations, dedicated and experienced personnel, as well as the ability to pass on great value to our clients.”

In November, Kreuz Subsea bolstered its senior management team with the appointment of Phil Bradbury as QHSE director.

Bradbury has more than 27 years’ experience in the oil and gas industry and has held quality, health and safety related management roles at DSND, ISS, Harkand and most recently, Rocksalt Subsea Ltd.
