BPC to build six oil storage tanks at Parbatipur

State-owned Bangladesh Petroleum Corporation (BPC) will build six oil storage tanks in Parbatipur to enhance the depot`s overall storage capacity more than three-folds to 56,636 tonnes in the northern region of the country.

The BPC has already floated tender for the construction of six petroleum tanks having the storage capacity of 6,761 tonnes each.

The successful bidder will be responsible for landscaping, construction and commissioning of the storage tanks, said a senior BPC official.

The deadline for tender submission is November 6.

Presently, Parbatipur oil depot in Dinajpur has a total storage capacity of 16,070 tonnes.

Officials said Parbatipur has long been a hub of petroleum storage and it supplies the fuel to nearby areas in the northern districts.

The new oil tanks will be used to store growing oil supplies as more fuel oil will be imported from neighbouring India.

Sources said the Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd. (BPCL) of India has already offered to directly supply an increased volume of diesel to the Parbatipur oil depot.

The BPCL intends to carry diesel to the Parbatipur depot through 50 wagons from Numaligarh refinery in Assam instead of 42 wagons at present. Some 2000 more tonnes of oil will be imported through the increased number of wagons.

Presently, Bangladesh imports around 8,800 tonnes of diesel every month from BPCL-owned Numaligarh refinery through four consignments, with 2,200 tonnes each.

Presently, the BPC`s overall oil storage capacity is around 1.20 million tonnes.
