Ahmedabad: India has taken a big leap in the field of technology. Megha Engineering Infrastructure Limited (MEIL) has developed and manufactured indigenous technology for rigs for extraction of mineral oil from the sea in Ahmedabad. This new success of MEIL will go a long way in achieving India’s goal of Made in India and Self-Reliant India. In Ahmedabad on Wednesday (August 25), MEIL handed over the first indigenous rigs to state-owned oil producer ONGC. This is considered to be a major achievement for India in technology self-sufficiency.
Rigs play an important role in the production of oil in the deep sea. Its technology is very complex and intricate. At the same time, India has become one of the few countries in the world to develop the technology to build this system. This will increase India’s dominance in the world. MEIL handed over the system in the presence of Bommareddy Srinivas, head of Drillmec. At this time, the head of the oil rig department N. Krishna Kumar (Oil Rigs Head N. Krishna Kumar), Vice President P. Rajesh Reddy was also present.
MEIL is the first private company in India to manufacture indigenous rigs
MEIL has been commissioned by ONGC to manufacture a total of 47 oil rigs. The total cost is Rs 6,000 crore. As part of this, MEIL handed over the first rig to ONGC. With this, MEIL became the first private company in the country to manufacture rigs producing indigenous oil on indigenous technology.
What is the feature of MEIL’s oil producing rigs?
These rigs made by MEIL are much more developed than the old rigs. That is why they can work more efficiently with less energy. Therefore, the cost of crude oil production will increase and the cost will be reduced. The capacity of this rig will be 1,500 HP. The system can easily dig up to a depth of 4,000 meters. These rigs will be able to produce mineral oil for almost 40 years due to modern technology.
MEIL’s second rig will be set up at KLDDH oil well in Dhamsana village in Gujarat. MEIL will supply 23 rigs out of a total of 47 rigs to ONGC by March 2022. Earlier, India had to depend on other countries for this technology and system. However, now India is self-sufficient in this regard. MEIL vice-president P.S. Rajesh Reddy expressed happiness and satisfaction. Also proud of this work.
