The natural-gas producing well of the Oil India Limited (OIL) in upper Assam's Tinsukia district continues to spew gas even 10 after the incident, causing grave damage to the region's wetlands and biodiversity. Images shared by locals on social media show gas condensate depositing in the Maguri beel wetland, dead carcasses of endangered Gangetic dolphins and other aquatic life floating in the Dibru-Saikhowa National Park, barely three kilometeres from the oil field where the incident took place on May 27.
