A land-based liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal will be built at Moheshkhali in Cox’s Bazar or Payra in Patuakhali under the initiative of state-owned Rupantarita Prakritik Gas Company Limited (RPGCL).
The aim of the terminal is to import LNG to face any sudden energy crisis because of supply shortfall in the near future.
An expression of interest (EoI) for construction of LNG re-gasification terminal on build-own-operate-transfer (BOOT) has been invited from prospective bidders, Engineer Md Quamruzzaman Manging Director of RPGCL told the energynewsbd.com.
On receipt of EoIs, interested companies deemed best suited to perform the operation will be short-listed, he said, adding that later request for proposal (RFP) will be sent to them.
May 22 this year is the last submission date of EoI.
The terminal developer and government of Bangladesh or its nominated company will invest here.
