“If you have a gas like methane, which can easily ignite, even static electricity can lead to ignition. if the temperature changes, Gas expands The particles move faster with heat.”
Khangale likened this to an inflated balloon – if left in the sun it could burst due to the change in temperature.
Kangal said that if a gas pipeline gets “compressed” and starts leaking, that can happen It affects the outside temperature and causes a spark.
“The fact that the explosion caused severe damage means that the pressure in the gas pipelines was very high.”
However, E.Jolly Gas said in a statement that it believed it was unlikely that the explosion was caused by a leak in a gas pipeline.
“Our network has not experienced any pressure loss, which indicates that the gas pipelines are intact. Our customers in the region are still receiving gas without interruption.”
