Imported LNG supply to nat’l grid rescheduled for Aug 8

The government has now set a target to start supplying re-gasified Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) to the national grid from August 8.

“We have once again rescheduled the supply date of maiden LNG to consumers on August 8,”said an official of Rupantarita Prakritik Gas Company Limited (RPGCL).

This is for the fourth time the date for LNG supply to the National Grid has been rescheduled.

He said: A high-powered team of Excelerate Energy Bangladesh Ltd visited in the site at Moheskhali recently and assured us completion of all works regarding maintaining the under construction pipeline by August 7, 2018.

In the last time, the RPGCL rescheduled the date for supplying the LNG to the gridline on July 4, 2018 after repairing the leakage in subsea pipeline in Bay.

Earlier, the US company was supposed to start the FSRU (floating, storage and re-gasification unit) in the first week of May, but managed to obtain an extension of two months. The government is planning to import about 3.75 million metric tonnes of LNG a year.

The first LNG consignment from Qatar`s RasGas Company Ltd reached Bangladesh on April 24.

The FSRU in Bangladesh has the capacity to hold 138,000 cubic metres of LNG and can re-gasify and distribute up to 500 million cubic feet per day, as per the deal.

According to Petrobangla, it supplies between 2,650-2750 mmcf of natural gas daily against the demand of 3,700mcf.
