ONGC Begins Repair of Heera-Uran Gas Pipeline

A suspected leakage on the Heera - Uran Gas pipeline from ONGC's western offshore Heera Field was observed today. The leakage site is about 5 Nautical Miles from BFL (Bombay Floating Lights).

ONGC has immediately taken up repair of leakage. In the meantime, the gas line has been depressurized. This will lead to temporary curtailment of about 0.5 mmscmd (million standard cubic meters per day) gas to consumers from Uran processing plant.

The pipeline will be made fully operational within a week's time.
