Joint venture to produce 600MW of power in Matarbari

A joint venture between Japan`s Mitsui and Co and a state-run Bangladeshi company is going to set up a liquefied natural gas-based power plant at Matarbari in Maheshkhali upazila to produce 500-600 megawatt of power.

Coal Power Generation Company Bangladesh Ltd signed a memorandum of understating with Mitsui and Co to this effect in Dhaka on November 8, 2017 according to a press release of the power, energy and mineral resources ministry.

The companies will have 50-50 ownership in the joint venture that will complete the project by 2021.

The government has taken initiatives to import a huge amount of LNG from next year. Both land-based and floating LNG terminals will be set up.

The government has approved two floating LNG terminals, each of which will supply 500 million cubic feet of gas per day.

In July, state-run Petrobangla and US-based Excelerate Energy signed the final deals to set up Bangladesh`s first LNG terminal in Maheshkhali, which will supply gas to the national grid from early 2018.
