SGS India has been assigned a contract to conduct Project Management Services during the construction of the new corporate office by Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) in Kolkata, India. SGS was selected out of many competitors due to its extensive experience and competence in projects of this kind in February 2011.

Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) is a state-owned oil and gas company in India, one of the leading energy producers in the world. As one of the highest profit making corporations in India, ONGC generates 77% of India’s crude oil production and 81% of India’s natural gas production.

Due to major growth, ONGC plans to set up new state-of-the-art corporate offices across various Indian cities. Part of this project includes the establishment of a corporate office, in compliance with Green Building requirements, in Kolkata, India.

In order to ensure the highest quality of the construction project in terms of safety, time and costs, ONGC looked for a reliable third-party inspection, verification and testing company.

SGS India was chosen to carry out comprehensive Project Management Services in February 2011 for the duration of the construction project, which is scheduled for completion in thirty two months.

With highly qualified experts and outstanding expertise, SGS India will minimize client risk at every stage of the construction works by ensuring that the project stays on schedule, within the planned budget and timeframe.

Based on its extensive experience in projects of this kind, SGS will coordinate various steps in review, verification, inspection, testing and approval for all phases of the project as well as coordinate the project with the stakeholders and suppliers.

Moreover, SGS will conduct Quality Assurance and Quality Control during the entire construction works in order to ensure that all products satisfy customer requirements in a systematic and reliable way and are in accordance with all contractual specifications, codes, standards and government regulations. With Quality Assurance and Quality Control, SGS will verify materials, parts and final products through checks, audits, inspections and witnessing. The inspection of materials or equipment will be carried out in accordance with quality assurance procedures and a checklist relating to specific types of equipment, operational factors and the vendor’s quality control system.

In addition, SGS will conduct Safety Management to assure the safety of workers onsite, as well as provide cost tracking and progress reports to the client. In addition, SGS will be responsible for the handover of the project.

With its network of specialists, SGS will coordinate all stages of the comprehensive construction works in order to keep the project within the planned time schedule and budget.
