The 98/2 project is about getting oil and gas from an area in the Bay of Bengal called Block KG-DWN-98/2. It’s led by the Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC). They’ve divided the project into phases. In the first phase, they started getting gas in March 2020, and now, in the second phase, they’re close to getting oil.

They faced challenges because the oil they’re dealing with is waxy, but they used a special technology called Pipe-in-Pipe to handle it. Some equipment was bought from other countries, but most of the work was done in India.
