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.
