MELBOURNE, Dec. 7 -- India's Oil & Natural Gas Corp. (ONGC) awarded a $215 million contract to engineering firm Clough Ltd., Perth, to serve as lead contractor for development of G1-GS15 oil field off eastern India.

The Krishna-Godavari basin field, 28 km offshore in 135-500 m of water, is expected to produce 1 million tonnes of low-sulfur crude and 6 billion cu m of gas over 15 years.

ONGC plans to drill five production wells, which will be completed subsea in 429 m of water and monitored and controlled remotely. Production will move via dual subsea pipelines to processing facilities onshore.

Development of GS 15, a shallow-water field 5 km offshore, will be integrated with the deepwater project.

Gas from the project has been exempted from India's price controls.

Clough's contract covers design, procurement, and installation of the onshore gas plant, a shallow-water wellhead platform, and the subsea completions and pipelines and associated control system.
