The Cluster 8, is a cluster of wells developed offshore by Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited, or ONGC, the largest crude oil or natural gas company in India, contributing to around 75% to Indian domestic production.

For this project, submarine pipelines were used to connect several wellhead platforms, which are ultimately connected to Mumbai.
Serimax reports that 99.7% of welds were spotless on this 60 km pipeline. In terms of productivity, 3.5 km per day has been reached on the 6 in. line.
