Oil and gas production in the Arabian Sea begins with ONGC’s “Sagar Samrat”.

The historic offshore drilling rig “Sagar Samrat” owned by the state-run ONGC now serves as a mobile production unit and began operations last month, the company announced on Tuesday.

The rig, which had passed its expiration date, was renovated into a mobile offshore production unit (MOPU), which can bring oil and gas discovered beneath the seabed to the surface.

Sagar Samrat is a 1973-era jack-up drilling rig. In 1974, Mumbai High, the largest oil field in India, was found thanks in large part to the rig.
