In a significant development, the fire at the Baghjan gas well of Oil India Limited in Assam’s Tisukia districts that had been on fire over five and half months following a blowout has been finally doused yesterday. The well operated by Oil India Limited (OIL) had caught fire on June 9. The Well first suffered a blow out on 27 May during work over operations. Two fire fighters and an Engineer of Oil India Limited have died at the accident site. Oil India limited along with ONGC and experts from USA and Singapore were able to cap the fire on the well head in August and a portion of the released gas diverted for production, still there was aflame burning due to the pressure of the unused gas near the well, that has also been doused yesterday using a snubbing technology brought in by Canadian experts. The world’s largest Civilian transport aircraft ANTONOV (AN124) was used to carry equiptment from Canada to Kolkata and then were transported by road in a 14- day long journey to reach Baghjan in Assam’s Tinsukia district. Earlier three attempts to ‘kill’ the well using the mud-sludge technique had failed.
