Four people died and five were injured as a major fire broke out at an Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited (ONGC) plant at Uran in Navi Mumbai on Tuesday, September 3.

“The blaze erupted at around 7 am on Tuesday, September 03,” the police said. “Three employees who were working inside, reportedly suffered injuries in the accident and they were rushed to a nearby private hospital,” he added.

ONGC is the largest crude oil and natural gas company in India, contributing around 70 per cent of domestic production. The crisis management team was also present at the spot and it has claimed that there has been no impact on oil processing and said that the gas is being diverted to Hazira Plant.

“The exact reason behind the fire is not known yet. As a preventive measure, we have cordoned off the area and are now allowing anyone to enter the unit at a distance of 1.5 kilometer,” the officer said. The region within 1 km range has been sealed.

Several CNG stations have been shut in Mumbai after the massive blaze. Mahanagar Gas Limited (MGL) that supplies both CNG and PNG in Mumbai Metropolitan Region said in a statement, “Due to a major fire at ONGC’s gas processing facility at Uran today morning, gas supply to MGL’s city gate station at Wadala has been severely affected.” The company has asked customers to switch to alternate fuel in the meantime.
