Projects

Nazira Project – Laying of 2 nos. gas pipelines:

This project from ONGC was executed in the north-east region of India. The scope of the project involved the laying of approximately 20 km. of pipeline. This was the first 18-inch gas line for Assam Asset. The project cost was USD 3.5 million. The pipeline laying was completed successfully and handed over to the client.

Desalter project:

The project client is ONGC. The scope of the project is to enhance the production capabilities and improve the crude oil quality of ONGC’s western asset. This project stipulates the requirement of certain components with the following specifications: a vessel of 27/6 meters (one of the largest vessels manufactured at Pressure Vessel Division, MEIL) & a production capacity of 27000 cubic meters. The three desalter vessels that replaced the existing vessels are completely automated and run on cutting-edge technology. The approximate value of the project is USD 7.5 million.
The end-to-end production requirements of the project were handled by MEIL’s manufacturing facilities and EPC Team and the project was successfully commissioned.

Assam Renewal Project (ARP)

ARP is a prestigious project which is being executed for the client ONGC. The value of the project is about USD 600 million. This is a revamping project of one of India’s largest onshore oil & gas field facilities for ONGC-Assam Lakwa fields on EPC basis.

The project includes:

  • » Laying of Well Fluid lines, Trunk lines (Oil & Gas), Gas Lift lines, Water Injection Lines
  • » Construction of Group Gathering Stations – 5 nos.
  • » Construction of Produced Water Treatment Plants – 2 nos.
  • » Construction of Water Injection Plants – 2 nos.
  • » Construction of Gas Compressor Plants – 2 nos.
  • » Construction of Captive Power Plant Gas Turbine driven 5 x 12.9 MW including Fuel Gas Conditioning System
  • » Construction of Gas Dehydration Unit
  • » Construction of Incineration Systems
  • » Construction of Crude Oil & Produced Water Storage Tanks
  • » 550 km. of cross country pipeline network
  • » Construction of advanced flare system to minimize the carbon footprint.
  •  

The objectives of the project are to strengthen the operational grid of the facility for the next 3 decades, develop & setup automated production facilities that minimize the need for human intervention, engineer state-of-the-art remote connectivity facilities that include well monitoring systems, wireless HART, wimax and triple play solutions, and reduce the carbon footprint of Assam Asset by reducing emissions & enabling carbon savings.The project is in an advanced stage of completion.

CGD Network Projects in Krishna District (A.P.), Tumkur District (Karnataka) and, Belgaum District (Karnataka):

The hydrocarbons division of MEIL is strategically investing into Business of Natural Gas as an authorized entity of City Gas Distribution Networks.The main objective of these projects is to develop the network in the geographical area to lay, build, operate and expand city or local natural gas distribution networks.
In recent times there is a major switch to CNG to pave way for a greener future. The usage of CNG will reduce the emission of gases like sulfur dioxide, particulate matter, volatile organic compounds, nitrogen dioxide, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide by a considerable amount. The potential benefits of natural gas are less emission of harmful gases that cause air pollution, reduce maintenance costs, and low energy losses. This investment is the second largest private investment in CGD Network Business in India.

City Gas Distribution network normally comprises of following major facilities:

  • » Laying of steel grid pipeline
  • » Laying of MDPE pipeline
  • » City Gate Station
  • » Mother Station
  • » CNG filling stations
  • » PNG Connections

The CGD Network Projects have been planned in Krishna district (A.P.), Tumkur district (Karnataka), and Belgaum district (Karnataka).
