Govt moves to drill 108 wells in onshore blocks

The government has placed special stress on natural gas exploration to ensure the country’s future energy security, state ministerfor power, energy and mineral resources Nasrul Hamid said on Tuesday.

Steps have been taken to drill some 108 new wells, he added.

Nasrul announced this while speaking as the chief guest at an event organised by Chevron Bangladesh at a hotel in Dhaka, said a press release.

The consumption of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) as an alternative to natural gas is being encouraged, he said.

The government is moving ahead with the target of becoming a developed country, prioritising the advancement of power and energy sector, he also said.

Already, some 90 per cent people have been brought under the grid power and 5.20 million people under the solar home systems, he said.

He also recognised the contribution of Chevron Bangladesh towards the country’s development.

Energy and mineral resources secretary Abu Hena Md Rahmatul Munim, Petrobangla chairman Abul Mansur Md Faizullah, US ambassador to Bangladesh Marcia Bernicat, and Chevron Bangladesh’s outgoing president Kevin Lyon also spoke on the occasion.

Chevron Bangladesh’s newly-appointed president Neil Menzis was introduced at the function.
