After a huge fire broke out at Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) plant in Navi Mumbai, the gas supply to Mahanagar Gas Limited’s (MGL) city gate station has been severely affected. The station is situated at Wadala.

MGL is ensuring that supply to its domestic Piped Natural Gas (PNG) consumers would be maintained on priority without interruption,” MGL said in a statement.

The gas supply across MGL’s network will operate smoothly once the natural gas from ONGC is restored. Currently, the gas has been diverted at Hazira plant in Surat, ONGC informed.
