16 May, 2006

Dr A K Balyan, ONGC Director (HR) & Director-In-Charge, BD & JV, has visited Qatar to seek new business opportunities and investments for the ONGC Group of Companies. The visit assumes great significance as Qatar is trying to improve bilateral investment opportunities with India.

During his stay in Doha, Dr Balyan made a presentation to Dr Hussain Abdullah, Board Member (Executive) and other top officers of the Qatar Investment Authority on 12th June, 2006. This was followed by high level meeting with H. E. Sheikh Hamad Bin-Jassim Bin-Jaber Al-Thani, First Deputy Prime Minster and Foreign Minister in the Emiri Diwan.

H E Dr. George Joseph, Ambassador of India to Qatar, accompanied the ONGC Group of Companies delegation to the meetings. The delegation, led by Dr. Balyan, included Dr C M Lamba, Director of ONGC NG BV, Mr. Ajeet Kumar Deshwal, Country Manager of ONGC Videsh Ltd, Qatar, and Mr. A G Pai, General Manager of MRPL.

To get a first hand assessment of the ongoing projects of OVL in Qatar, Dr Balyan visited OVL’s Doha office and reviewed the progress made on the Najwat Najem Oil Structure Project (NN Project). The NN Project is situated in Block 8, Offshore, Qatar, around 90 km from that country’s coast and at a water depth of 30 to 45 meter.

OVL has to drill at least two appraisal wells in the Block during the appraisal period, which is scheduled to end in May 2007.
