Azerbaijan, Baku, July 22 / Trend, E.Ismayilov /
At present, the number of accidents related with use of gas by consumers fell to a minimum, deputy head of the Security, Ecology and Quality Department of the "Azerigaz" Production Unit of the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan (SOCAR) Kamal Tarverdiyev said over phone within an open hour for press.
He said in summer a gas leak accidents and accidents associated with its use, are extremely rare, which is associated with a reduction in consumption.
"Most often such cases occur from mid-October to March, and this is due to increased gas consumption," Tarverdiyev said.
He said Azerigaz employees regularly conduct inspections of gas devices of consumers and inform them about the rules of proper use of gas to avoid further accidents.
One of the main causes of accidents is the improper connection of lines and chimneys by subscribers, which in result may cause a leak of domestic gas and carbon monoxide, Tarverdiyev said.
