Pakistan State Oil prevents oil theft worth millions of rupees

Karachi, November 25, 2013 (PPI-OT): Pakistan State Oil (PSO) unearthed a mud passage near the Lalpir-Kapco pipeline and prevented oil theft worth millions of rupees.

Over the weekend, PSO security staff which was on routine patrolling duty along the Lalpir – Kapco pipeline noticed the presence of black slush and a pit near Sinawan close to the route of the aforementioned pipeline. Upon receipt of this information, the PSO depot officer hurried to the location for inspection purposes.

To rule out any possibility of un-authorized or illegal activity, the Company decided to carry out excavation of the suspected area. In light of this decision, immediate arrangements were made for the excavation of the area. During the digging activity a 3 foot wide mud passage was discovered approximately 5 feet away from the oil pipeline.

This attempt at pilferage was foiled due to the strong vigilance of the PSO staff and resulted in prevention of oil theft worth millions of rupees. PSO has filed an application in the concerned local police station to ensure the miscreants are caught and brought to justice.
