ONGC to provide water supply in rural areas

Written by: Staff

Agartala, Sep 10 (UNI) As a part of key initiative towards Corporate Social Responsibility, Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) Limited will allow Tripura to take over the deep water tube wells, which have been drilled by the company to facilitate its drilling operations.

ONGC has signed a Memorndum of Understanding (MoU) with the Public Health Engineering (PHE) Department of the state Government in this regard recently.

Villagers, residing in the vicinity of the operational area where ONGC has completed the drilling activities and the wells are no longer in use, will be the main beneficiaries of such a social welfare initiative of ONGC.

It may be noted that ONGC drills deep-water tube wells as part of drilling operations for providing drinking water at the various drill sites for their employees and for drilling operations.

It has a number of well sites which are presently not in use.

ONGC has now decided, in consultation with the state Government, to hand over such water tube wells to Public Health Department who in turn will use these to provide drinking water to nearby villages.

The handing over of deep water tube wells will be done by ONGC to PHE Department, free of cost on the mutually agreed terms and conditions.

A MoU was signed by Devendra Singh, Incharge HR-ER of ONGC and S.C Debbarma, Superintendent Engineer (PHE) on behalf of state Government in presence of R.K Marya, Asset Manager of ONGC and other senior officers from both sides.
