Pipeline fire: RIL restores gas supply, assessing loss - Sakshi Post

Reliance Industries is in the process of assessing the gas loss due to damage of a trunk pipeline and subsequent fire at Sadasivapet in Telangana as the supply of gas has been restored.

Fire had broken out in the wee hours of Sunday in the 1,375 km-long RGTIL-operated natural gas pipeline at Sadasivapet in Medak district. Supply of gas has been restored through the pipeline last night, a source told PTI. The pipeline transports the gas from its KG-D6 field in Kakinada to Bharuch in Gujarat for supplying it to RIL customers. There was no loss of life or injuries due to the incident, the company had earlier said.

A senior government official said the gas supply had been stopped for nearly three days for taking up necessary repair works to the damaged portion of the pipeline. The actual amount of gas lost in fire is still being assessed and is likely to be a fraction of what has been reported (in a section of media), a company statement said. Reduction or interruption of gas flow to downstream customers is expected to last for a period of about 24 to 48 hours and all authorities concerned and affected customers have been informed, the company had earlier said. The official said there will not be any inquiry from the government end as there was no financial or human loss reported in the fire
