First digital autogas filling station established in Bogra

Intraco group, one of the largest private entrepreneurs of the country’s energy sector has established the first digital LPG autogas filling station in Bogra.

On October 8, H M Hakim Ali, the chairman of Intraco Group inaugurated the first autogas filling station at Shahjahanpur upazilla of Bogra.

During the inauguration, Hakim Ali said that the government has taken several initiatives to inspire people in using LPG as an alternative of natural gas.

As a continuation of that government initiative, Intraco LPG Ltd has established this first digital LPG autogas filling station in Bogra.

He also informed that 200 more LPG autogas stations will be established in different districts of Bangladesh in near future.   

Lawmaker Tajul Islam, Chairman of the parliamentary standing committee on Ministry of Power, Energy and Mineral Resources was also present at the occasion. Also present were Mohammed Irad Ali, Deputy Managing Director of Intraco LPG Ltd, the DC of Bogra, the senior ASP of Bogra among other local elites.

What is autogas?

Autogas is the common name for liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) when it is used as a fuel in internal combustion engines in vehicles as well as in stationary applications such as generators. It is a mixture of propane and butane.

An official from the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources Division (EMRD) said that the government has taken several attempts to reduce the usage of compressed natural gas in household and vehicles.

As a part of the LPG is going to be used in motor vehicles, the official said adding that using autogas in motor vehicles instead of petrol and diesel is more environment-friendly and cost effective.

Autogas has been able to establish itself as an environment friendly alternative.

The level of carbon monoxide, carbon-di-oxide, sulpher-di-oxide and nitrogen oxide which are emitted from petrol and diesel driven vehicles pollute the environment to a large extent whereas autogas does not pollute the environment by emitting those gas in such extent.

Already three private entrepreneurs have gotten permission from the government to establish 1,000 autogas filling stations across the country. 

The EMRD official said that government permission for some other private entrepreneurs for establishing autogas filling stations is in the pipeline.

As of now, there are 12 autogas filling stations and around 1,500 vehicles are using autogas.
