State-owned Bangladesh Petroleum Exploration Company (Bapex) has discovered a new reserve of a significant amount of natural gas in Bhola, a district of the country`s southern region.

The new gas reserve, which is found in Bheduria union of Bhola district, is estimated to have 600 billion cubic feet (bcf) natural gas.

"With this reservoir, the total gas reserve in Bhola now stands at 1.5 trillion cubic feet (tcf)", Cabinet Secretary Shafiul Alam told a press briefing following the weekly meeting of the cabinet held at Prime Minister`s Office (PMO) with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in the chair on Monday.
