Natural Gas came out instead
of water from a tube well in
On the 17th of this month, the gas came out from the ground of the digging for water in the compound of U Aung Than Kyaw’s house, who is the president of Ya-Ra-Ka, the village level administration body of the junta, SPDC.
The gas attracted attention of the local people who crowded the compound.
A witness of the event said, “The gas emerged from the tube well is flammable. First, people tried setting the gas alight. But later they realise the flame is not going to extinguish by itself. So they forcefully put it out. Since they are fearful of fire, they informed the authorities.”
Currently, a team of geologists is in the village in order to find out wether the gas come from an ore or not.
