ONGC resumes supply from flood-hit Hazira
Mumbai, Sept 9: The state owned Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) today said it has finally restored gas processing operations to its pre-shutdown level before the floods at the Hazira complex in Surat, Gujarat.
''Gas processing operations at Hazira reached a throughput level of 40 million cubic metres a day, 22 days ahead of initial schedule,'' an ONGC statement said.
The biggest gas processing unit of the country which supplies gas to the cross-country HVJ pipeline was shutdown on August 7, this year due to the influx of flood waters from the adjoining Tapi river, effectively halting two-thirds of the country's domestic natural gas output.
The 2800 Km HVJ pipeline passes through Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Delhi.
