Mangaluru, Jan 25, 2016: An employee of the Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Limited, in a swift action here on Saturday, plugged a leak in the company’s crude oil pipeline.
According to a press release, crude oil started leaking from the pipeline after personnel of an external agency, which is not related to MRPL, accidentally hit the pipeline while doing ground work in Thokur.
Ramesh Poojary from MRPL’s administration department was the first to spot the leak, while he was passing by that road. He got of his vehicle and took preliminary measures to stop the leak before alerting the MRPL maintenance wing personnel. The maintenance wing personnel arrived at the spot after a few minutes and plugged the leak, the release said.
