Tinsukia: The natural gas well of Oil India Limited (OIL) in eastern Assam’s Tinsukia district that had a blowout on May 27 caught fire on Tuesday afternoon. The “accidental fire” happened 13 days after the well started spewing gas and associated elements and a day after three disaster control experts reached the spot — Baghjan near the Dibru-Saikhowa National Park — to work on taming the blowout. OIL officials said the cause of the fire, which broke out at 1.40 p.m., was yet to be ascertained. None, except a fireman of the Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited, was injured, they added.

“The well caught fire while the clearing operations were on. There are violent protests around the site. A request has been made to the State government for maintaining law and order so that experts are allowed to enter the site and start well control operations,” an OIL spokesperson said.

“The blowout will take four weeks to control once the fire is contained,” the statement said.

Locals said some houses were damaged in the neighborhood of the well, but OIL officials said the threat was minimal since all the 1,610 families in villages around the spot have been shifted to a safe distance.

Immediately after the incident, Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal alerted Union Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan and sought the Centre’s urgent intervention. He also directed the Tinsukia district administration to take urgent steps to provide safety and relief to the affected locals.
