Incident: Gas Pipe Line Exposure

Gas supply to Uch Power Plant was affected after unknown men blew up the gas pipeline of the plant in the Chathar area near Dera Murad Jamali, the district headquarters of Nasirabad, late on Saturday night, the DMJ police said.

Some miscreants had planted an explosive under the pipeline supplying gas from Sui town of Dera Bugti to the Uch Power Plant in the Nasirabad district. The pipeline was destroyed after the explosives went off and a three-foot portion of the 26-inch diameter pipeline was blown up.

The Oil and Gas Development Corporation (OGDC) sources said the production was not affected due to the blast as the power plant arranged gas supply from alternate sources. Meanwhile, the OGDC and the Pakistan Petroleum Limited (PPL) sources told reporters that they had sent engineers to the site for repairing the damaged pipeline. Police have registered a case against unknown miscreants and started investigation.
