Oil India Limited (OIL) will be providing a relief of ₹30,000 to each of the impacted families as an immediate relief in light of the Baghjan field blowout.

The detailed beneficiary list with name and bank account details will be prepared by District Administration, an OIL statement said.

“This was decided at a tripartite meeting held today at the office of the Deputy Commissioner, Tinsukia with the representatives of Baghjan Gaon Milan Jyoti Yuva Sangha and OIL team,” the statement added.

OIL said the Well Number Baghjan-5 continues to flow gas uncontrollably.

Alert Disaster Control, the Singapore-based firm that has been engaged by OIL to control the blowout, will reach Duliajan, late evening on June 7. The delay in their arrival is due to Covid-related clearances at Singapore, OIL said.
