Belin, March (10)
A gas pipeline exploded and caught fire in the back of Phayar Ngoteto monastery in Katoseik village, Pauktaw village tract in Mon State’s Belin Township, the locals told Than Lwin Times.
The gas pipeline was detonated at around 3 am on March 9, and more than three feet of the gas pipeline was damaged.
The gas pipeline was blown up and set ablaze until it was extinguished around 8 a.m.
On the afternoon of March 9, regime troops and officials are reportedly repairing the damaged gas pipeline.
According to local residents, it is a pipeline that sends natural gas sold to Thailand through Yangon, but Than Lwin Times has not been able to confirm this.
The gas pipeline runs along Zotika-Kanpaukk-MyaingKalay-Yangon. Due to the explosion, the power supply to the power system of the Hlawga natural gas power plant was reduced by almost 55 megawatts.
However, the military council’s Yangon Electricity Supply Corporation announced that it will increase power generation from water power plants to cover the reduced electricity supply during the matriculation examination.
