The Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) has begun the process for capping a borewell, that got active and threw water to the surface, in Kothapally village in Andhra Pradesh’s East Godavari district.
The borewell, which was dug 20 years before and abandoned by a farmer, recently got active and some biogas also surged to the surface yesterday, an ONGC release said today.
The ONGC scientists reached the spot after being alerted by the villagers and decided to cap the borewell using their equipment, it said.
The primary capping is expected to be done by 2 pm today. Permanent closure would be done later, the release added.
