Chattogram starts getting 300mmcfd LNG

The consumers in the Chattogram region get 300mmcfd of liquefied natural gas (LNG), said Rupantarita Prakritik Gas Company Limited (RPGCL) managing director Md Quamruzzaman.

He said, “Consumers of Chattogram have started consuming an amount of 300 million cubic feet per day gas from the Floating Storage Re-gasification Unit in Moheshkhali since Monday,”

With the supply of LNG, the long-drawn problems regarding low pressure and unavailability of gas in peak hours both in industries and residence have already been eased, he said.

State-owned Karnaphuli Gas Distribution Company Ltd (KGDCL) is supplying gas to local industries, gas-based power plants, fertiliser units and domestic consumers.

Karnaphuli is responsible for supplying piped natural gas to consumers in Chittagong, Cox`s Bazar, Rangamati, Bandarbans and Khagrachari districts of Bangladesh.

KGDCL officials said the Gas Transmission Company Ltd increased the LNG supply to 300 mmcfd from its previous 100 mmcfd since August 18.

The demand for gas in Chattogram ranges between 450 and 500 mmcfd. Chattogram region had been suffering from acute gas shortages for the past several years.

Businesses in Chattogram see the increasing gas supply as a boon for them and hoped the required gas supply to the region will continue.

Raozan 420 megawatt (MW) Power Plant, Shikalbaha 60MW Power Plant, Chittagong Urea Fertiliser Ltd and Kafco Fertilier Plant are lying idle for months for gas crisis.

KGDC sources said the second ship with 138,000 cubic metres of LNG arrived from Qatar for the LNG import facility in the Bay of Bengal off Moheshkhali Island.
