Zuari Industries has reported that a major fire broke out due to leak in pipeline carrying feedstock on August 19, 2011 near Mangor Hill at Vasco-da-Gama, Goa. The fire had occurred due to excavation work being carried out by the contractor of National Highway Authority of India which damaged the underground naphtha pipeline, owned by joint venture of the company namely, Zuari Indian Oiltanking (ZIOL).
Further, the cross country pipeline is of 14 kms in length from the Mormugao Port to the Terminal of ZIOL and carries petroleum products apart from Naphtha. In view of the accident, there may be impact on feedstock supplies to the company and consequently, production of urea at the company's facility.
Zuari Industries, part of the K.K. Birla Group, was incorporated as Zuari Agro Chemicals to manufacture urea and complex fertilizers. The company forayed into various business areas such as cement, furniture, hybrid seeds, engineering consultancy, financial services, and oil tanking through a route of subsidiaries and joint ventures.
