Explosion at illegal oil well kills 21 in Aceh Province, Sumatra.

Twenty one people have died and another 42 people have been injured following an explosion at an illegal oil well in the village of Pasir Putih in Aceh Province, Sumatra, on Wednesday 25 April 2018. The well was apparently run by local people from the village, which lies within an area where all legal drilling is controlled by the Indonesian state oil company Pertamina. The operators had apparently drilled own to a depth of about 250 m, when they struck a pocket of pressurised oil which they were unable to control and sprayed freely from the well. This attracted the attention of other people in the village, who gathered to try to collect some of the oil. At some point after this the oil was ignited, causing a major explosion and fire, though accounts of how this happened vary (though there would seem to have been a degree of bad luck involved, as crude oil is not usually easy to ignite).

The fire destroyed at least five homes and burned for several hours, before eventually being extinguished by teams from the National Disaster Mitigation Agency assisted by specialist fire fighting crews loaned by Pertamina. Authorities in the area are concerned there may still be undiscovered casualties in the village, and are planning to prosecute those responsible for the disaster.

  2. EDWARD JONES FINANCE IS THE BEST PLACE TO GET A LOAN {Jonesloanfinance@yahoo.com},

    God bless you sir, I will not stop telling the world about your kindness in my life, I am a single mum with kids to look after. My name is Emily Thomas and I am from Convention Center Drive, Miami Beach, FL . A couple of weeks ago My friend visited me and along our discussion she told me about EDWARD JONES FINANCE, that they can help me out of my financial situation, I never believed cause I have spend so much money on different loan lenders who did nothing other than running away with my money. I have been in a financial mess for the pass 7 months now, She advised I give it a try so I mailed him and explain all about my financial situation to him, he therefore took me through the loan process and gave me a loan of $390,000.00 at a very low interest rate of 2% and today I am a proud business owner and can now take good care of my kids, If you must contact any firm to get any amount of loan you need with a low interest rate of 2% and better repayment schedule, please contact EDWARD JONES FINANCE email:- {Jonesloanfinance@yahoo.com} OR Text +1(307) 217-5388
