An explosion reportedly occurred in a gas pipeline of ONGC at Nazira in upper Assam’s Sivasagar district on Monday.

ONGC sources said that the explosion occurred on the company’s pipeline at Rig No 2 at Seuj Chapori in Geleki.

As per reports, a massive fire broke out at the site following the explosion.

The cause of the explosion is presently not known.

Sources said the residents of the nearby areas have been evacuated.

The incident took place one month after the blowout at OIL’s gas well at Baghjan in upper Assam’s Tinsukia district.

The well at Baghjan has been spewing gas uncontrollably following the blowout on May 27 and it caught fire on June 9, which is yet to be doused.
