The Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) will draw up new regulations to prevent a recurrence of the gas pipe explosion, which took place on Thursday last week, ERC secretary-general Komkri Tantravanich said on Monday.

A PTT gas pipe exploded in Samut Prakan’s Bang Bo district last week killing three people and leaving many injured. The explosion also damaged houses and vehicles in the vicinity.

He added that the current rules will also be adjusted in compliance with the changing environment of places nearby, as more new communities, roads and buildings continue popping up.

The regulator is waiting for experts to find the real cause of the incidence and will use this information to draw up the new regulations.

He said this explosion will not affect national power security.
