8That is quite a feather in the cap for the company but it remains to seem how quickly the rest of the rigs are deployed as per timelines committed by the company to ONGC.
8This experience will not count while MEIL bids for downstream projects but due to a change of bidding norms and on the basis of its experience in the Assam Renewal Project of ONGC, it is expected to emerge as a very formidable competitor in this segment.
