The Offshore Services Department was set up to provide logistics support to India’s growing offshore oil industry. The SCI owns and operates 10 Anchor Handling, Towing-cum-Supply vessels (AHTSV). These vessels have been offering valuable support services to the Indian offshore oil industry. Apart from carrying out anchor handling and towing operations, these vessels also transport materials to offshore installations, support construction activities, act as fire fighting and rescue vessels, and assist in salvage activities.
The AHTSV’s are preferred by ONGC due to their reliable performance, which is a result of the strict planned maintenance schedule undertaken for the upkeep of these vessels.
The SCI has over the years earned laurels for its competitiveness, professionalism and dedicated operation of various offshore services from ONGC.
SCI has undertaken Marine Management and Operation Services (O&M) for various highly specialized offshore vessels of ONGC like:
- Multi Support Vessels
- Well Stimulation Vessels
- Geo-technical Vessels
- Drill Ships
Seismic Survey Vessels
Presently, SCI takes care of O & M of some of ONGC's offshore support vessels and specialized vessels. While the vessels are owned by ONGC, the operations and management of these vessels is done by SCI. SCI has extensive experience in managing offshore and specialized vessels, and expects to play a larger role in the Indian offshore shipping industry in future.
