Kolkata/IBNS: Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Ltd (ONGC) is extending logistical help to families of affected crew members of Barge P-305. The company will provide all necessary logistical help and support for the dependent family members to travel to Mumbai and back besides making arrangements for families to take back the mortal remains of the deceased persons to their hometowns.

Three construction barges of M/s Afcons working on a project of ONGC in Western Offshore fields in the Arabian Sea and one floater drilling rig of ONGC were severely impacted in the cyclone and Barge P-305 sank during the cyclone.

Indian Navy along with Coast Guard and ONGC are continuing with extensive search and rescue operations for the crew members who are still missing.
