During a routine maintenance check of our Vizag-Secunderabad LPG Pipeline at Suryapet (approx. 140 km from Hyderabad), Telangana, an unforeseen and devastating incident occurred on 4th April, 2015. We lost two very precious lives during a normal pipeline pigging and cleaning operation. Three of our engineers were injured and were rushed to Hyderabad for treatment. The best medical facilities and treatment is underway and we wish them a smooth recovery.
The operations were being carried out by TDW India, which is a 100 percent subsidiary of TDW, USA. Fortunately no fire or explosion occurred ensuring no damage to nearby villages or public property. Our heart felt condolences go out to the families who lost their loved ones.
