CAG finds deficiencies in ONGC’s marine logistics operations

The Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) in its latest performance audit report of Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) has found deficiencies with regard to safety in marine logistics operations by the company.

“Non-adherence to procedures laid down in Marine Operations Manual by vessel operators and selective adoption of guidelines lead to compromise of safety in marine logistics operations. Besides, ONGC does not have a separate marine cadre to supervise the quality of services provided by its operation and maintenance contractor and to ensure adherence to standards defined by the company for chartered vessels,” CAG said in a release.

The marine logistic services of ONGC provide vital support to the offshore platforms and rigs through vessels and by storing and supplying various types of materials/equipment required for smooth exploration and production operations. Read More
