5. Four Hon'ble MPs complained that while evaluating the commercial responsiveness , unwanted relaxations were granted to the Consortium bidder lead by M/s Great Offshore and another bidder M/s Nafrogaz. M/s Sub Ocean one of the consortium partners with M/s Great Offshore was stated to be not meeting the Financial criterion regarding Turn over. Whereas in case of M/s Nafrogaz the Statutory Auditors expressed doubt about the financial position of their Parent company. Hence the representationist sought that the above two bids ought to be rejected. Priced bids were opened on 24.08.07.

  • Case Value: Rs 725 Cr.
  • In the Joint Report dtd 08.10.07, the panel of 3 IEMs opined that the relaxation granted to the consortium of M/s Great Offshore in the matter of turnover criteria in relation to M/s Subocean seems to be in order and does not bestow any undue advantage. In case of other bidder M/s Nafrogaz, the Balance Sheet of 2006 (not available during evaluation) resolves the issues raised by the earlier BS of 2005. Presently, the BS of 2006 is available and demonstrates that the financial position of the parent co.M/s Nafro Gaz, Ukraine is sound and consequentially, Nafrogaz India is commercially responsive.

6. Contract with M/s Liaohe Petroleum Exploration Bureau (LPEB) China for 3D Data acquisition was terminated by ONGC due to delay in mobilization and un-preparedness of contractor for execution of contract.

  • Case Value: Rs. 240Cr
  • In their record of proceedings dtd 27.11.07, the panel of 3 IEMs noted that the contract was terminated by ONGC on 08.11.07, it was also brought to their notice that the representationist is contemplating Arbitration proceedings in respect of the termination of the contract. In the totality of the circumstances, IEMs felt this was essentially a matter of arbitration.

7.M/s L&T represented that as per tender provisions bids shall be submitted only in the name of bidder or a consortium/ joint venture lead by the bidder in whose name bidding documents were issued by ONGC. M/s L& T contented regarding responsiveness and admissibility of bid submitted by M/s Ramunia Fabricators Sdn. Bhd. Malaysia in whose name bid documents were not issued but in the name of M/s Ramunia International Services Ltd, Kuala Lumbur

  • Case Value: Rs 2323 Cr
  • In the Record of Proceedings dtd 30.11.07, the panel of 3 IEMs opined that since the consequence of the factual position is that the bid submitted by RFSB does not successfully meet the requirement stipulated in Clause 10.1 of ITB, hence the bid seems to be incapable of being regarded as admissible under clause A-4 of BEC. Therefore the bid of RFSB does not merit consideration .
