India gives 2200 tonnes of gasoil to Bangladesh as goodwill gesture

A train carrying 2,200 tonnes of gasoil left Siliguri of the West Bengal state of India towards Bangladesh with Indian high commission here saying the consignment was manifestation of New Delhi`s goodwill gesture for the neighbouring country.

"The gasoil is a goodwill gesture of India to Bangladesh," the Indian high commission said in a statement adding union state minister for Petroleum & Natural Gas Dharmendra Pradhan flagged off the train at Siliguri while it was set to reach Bangladesh on March 19.

Officials familiar with the process here said Bangladesh`s state minister for power, energy and mineral resources Nasrul Hamid along with Indian envoy in Dhaka Harsh Vardhan Shringla would receive the consignment at northwestern Parbatipur.

"This event is very significant as it highlights of the cooperation between India and Bangladesh in the energy sector as outlined in the Joint Declaration "Notun Projonmo, Nayi Disha," adopted during the visit of the Indian Prime Minister to Bangladesh in June 2015, the high commission statement said.

As part of mutual cooperation in energy sector Bangladesh Petroleum Corporation (BPC) and Numaligarh Refinery Limited (NRL) had signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU).

In line with the MoU, 130-km Indo-Bangla Friendship Pipeline (IBFPL) from NRL`s Siliguri Marketing Terminal (West Bengal) to BPC`s Parbatipur Petroleum Product Storage Depot in Dinajpur District will be built through a joint venture company having equity participation from both NRL and BPC.

NRL has supplied this first 2200 MT consignment of gasoil at a "goodwill price" as proposed by the BPC.
