An accident occurred on the 23-kilometer part of the Galmaz-Gazimamed gas pipeline with a diameter of 720 millimeters, on Aug.7, at about 20:55, Ibrahim Ahmadov, deputy head of the public relations and events department at Azerbaijan's state oil company SOCAR, told.

“The gas pipeline was put into operation in 1975. This gas pipeline operates within the internal distribution system and is not connected to other gas pipelines. The accident has been localized and the fire has almost been extinguished. The explosion didn’t cause any restrictions on gas supply throughout the country and no interruptions in gas supply are expected. All strategic facilities are supplied with gas,” he said.
