WATCH: Massive Gas Pipeline Leak Results in Yamuna River Eruption in UP Town

Baghpat: A pipeline failure caused a burst in an underwater pipeline owned by the Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) in Baghpat, Uttar Pradesh. The incident occurred in Jagos village, and the eruption was spotted by villagers at 3 am on Wednesday.

The pipeline in question is the Dari-Panipat Natural Gas Pipeline, which is 132 kilometres long and interconnected with GAIL’s Hazira-Vijaipur-Jagdishpur Pipeline (HVJPL). The pipeline transports natural gas to IOC’s Panipat Refinery and Panipat Naphtha Cracker Plant, serving customers in Uttar Pradesh and Haryana.

The eruption caused the Yamuna River to gush out, and locals recorded a video of the incident and shared it on social media. The situation was brought under control by 7.45 am with the joint efforts of officials, police, and fire brigade personnel.

IOC has taken prompt action, closing both upstream and downstream location valves to contain the situation. A team has been dispatched to repair the underwater pipeline.
