OGNC Disrupted National Petroleum Production Plan

ONGC closed its plant at 01.53 am due to flooding with 4-5 feet of water

India's leading energy and petroleum companies like Reliance Industries Ltd, Essar Steel, IFFCO, Kribhco, and NTPC Ltd were forced to downscale production after the national oil ands gas giant ONGC suspended supply of natural gas from its gas processing station at Hazira on account of incessant rains.

ONGC closed its plant at 01.53 am due to flooding with 4-5 feet of water released from the Ukai dam.

By morning the boundary wall had collapsed, and the water level at the plant risen to ten feet. Subsequently, the offshore platforms of ONGC?s Bassein field and the joint venture fields of Panna-Mukta and Tapti, which supplied 40 million standard cubic metres of gas per day to the Hazira plant, were closed.
