Dr. Alka Mittal — ONGC CMD said that the company has outlined plans to boost its capex spend in the next few years.

Alka Mittal stated: “A major part of this spend will be on exploration with acquisition of new acreages; use of latest technology in seismic data Acquisition, Processing and Interpretation (API) and on development and infrastructure projects for fast tracking the monetization of discovered resources.

“ONGC is also in the process of incorporating a wholly owned subsidiary to focus and grow its gas business.”

Last month, ONGC awarded a contract to Larsen & Toubro’s fully-owned subsidiary L&T Hydrocarbon Engineering Limited (LTHE) for the seventh development phase of its Pipeline Replacement Projects (PRP-VII).
