Gas pipelines at city airport: ONGC told to find solution

Surat: The district administration has directed Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) to work out a solution for rerouting or covering of the buried sour gas pipelines passing through Surat airport, which are proving to be a major irritant in the proposed extension of runway from 2,905 metres to 3,810 metres.
District collector Dr Dhaval Patel in a meeting held with officials of ONGC and Airports Authority of India (AAI) two days ago discussed the issue of the buried sour gas pipelines passing through the airport.

The meeting was held after the state government and the AAI jointly decided to take ONGC on board to work out a solution for rerouting or covering of the pipelines in the airport area in a time-bound manner.

ONGC had invited expression of interest (EoI) for the safe operation of the buried pipeline six months ago, but things are moving at a snail’s speed.
