Govt to ensure energy security by increasing gas production: Tawfiq

Prime Minister`s Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Affairs Adviser Dr Tawfiq-e-Elahi Chowdhury on Wednesday said the government is working to increase gas production alongside importing liquefied natural gas (LNG) to meet energy demand in the country.

"Process is underway to explore onshore gas across the country alongside the importing of LNG," he said this while addressing a seminar at Petro Center in the city`s Karwan Bazar.

Energy and Mineral Resources Division organised the seminar marking the National Energy Security Day 2017 with its secretary Nazimuddin Chowdhury in the chair.

Among others, chairman of energy regulatory council Monwar Islam, Petrobangla chairman Abul Mansur M Faizullah and BPC chairman Abu Hena Rahmatul Munim spoke.

Manager of Rupantarita Natural Gas Company Limited Kazi M Anwarul Azim presented an article entitled "LNG as Primary Energy: Bangladesh Perspective" and Dr Moniruzzaman, deputy secretary of the Energy and Mineral Resources, presented a paper on `Oil Pipeline: to ensure uninterrupted oil supply for energy security` at the seminar.

The adviser said the government has also emphasized on offshore exploration of gas.

Referring to Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman`s milestone task for the country after independence by acquiring five gas fields on August 9, 1975, Nazimuddin Chowdhury said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is also taking steps to ensure energy security in the country.

Earlier, one minute silence was observed commemorating the martyrdom of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and most of his family members.
