ONGC employees undertake ‘energy walk’
Wearing T-shirts with a message on the importance of oil and gas conservation, ONGC Rajahmundry employees, led by P. Krishna Rao, GGM-Asset Manager, Rajahmundry Asset, undertook ‘energy walk’ from Prakash Nagar to ONGC Base Complex in Lalachervu on Wednesday. The walk was conducted as part of the Oil and Gas Conservation Fortnight-2013. Some 250 employees participated in the walk.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Rao said the ‘energy walk’ was organised to create awareness among the citizens of Rajahmundry about the conservation of fossil fuels. “Currently the estimated oil and gas resources in India are only 0.5 per cent of the world’s reserves, while the population of the nation is around 16 per cent. And these resources are likely to last in next 50 years.
A proactive conservation approach, if adopted, will enhance the duration of the availability of the hydrocarbons,” he said.
Careless and casual approach towards the use of oil and gas by consumers would deprive the future generation of the luxury of the present generation.
It may lead to a scenario where the future generations have to see the oil and gas as artefacts in museums, Mr. Krishna Rao cautioned.
The country was importing oil and gas by paying an export bill of Rs. 4.5 lakh crore per annum. As a responsible citizen, it was the duty of every citizen to save and use the precious resources judiciously and lessen the burden on the national economic resources, he underlined.
During the fortnight, training programme for drivers on fuel saving, energy conservation talk by experts, essay, poster and quiz competitions for children and employees, LPG clinics for housewives, free check-up for vehicles were conducted.
M.L.D. Kanakamedala, DGM (electrical), coordinated the fortnight programme.
