In September 2019, a major fire broke out at ONGC’s gas processing unit in Navi Mumbai’s Uran area, which killed four people.
ONGC has also witnessed fire incidents at other locations. In September 2020, a fire had erupted at the company's gas processing unit at Hazira in Gujarat. It was extinguished later in the day without any casualties.
Prior to that, in March 2019, there was another major blaze reported as an oil well run by the ONGC at Nandej near Ahmedabad caught fire.
