Production down "slightly" at Lanco India plant after pipeline blast

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Production at the 1,466 megawatt Kondapalli power plant of the Lanco Group in southern India has fallen “slightly” after a blast on Friday at a pipeline supplying it with gas, a spokesman for the company operating the plant said.

    Lanco Group, which operates the plant in Andhra Pradesh, is now sourcing gas from an alternate line, the spokesman said.

    More than a dozen people were killed on Friday after a blast at a gas pipeline operated by state-owned energy company GAIL (India) Ltd (GAIL.NS).
