LTHE Wins Paradip Contract
Project cargo specialist L&T Hydrocarbon Engineering is to deliver and install parts for the IOCL Paradip Refinery in Odisha, India.

“Over the past three decades, LTHE has served the offshore oil and gas industry with consistent delivery through excellent execution performance on the ongoing projects, LTHE has established a strong track record in the Middle East,” a spokesperson said.
Fabrication at Hazira
The offshore oilfield expansion of Saudi’s Berri field is estimated to add crude production of 250,000 barrels per day and is expected to drive major breakbulk activity in the lead up to project completion.
LTHE will deliver "design to build" engineering and construction solutions for the project with construction taking place at its flagship facility at Hazira in Gujarat, India. Services will be delivered via the firms offshore, onshore, construction services, modular fabrication and engineering services verticals.
