India’s state-controlled Oil & Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) is poised to revive its huge Daman upside gas development project off the country’s western coast.

Several sources familiar with the development told Upstream that ONGC is expected within weeks to initiate a tender process for the much delayed Daman project, which aims to significantly boost gas output from its west coast assets.

“We are hoping that the engineering, procurement and construction phase for the further development of Daman could be tendered as early as next month,” one source said.
