Bangladesh to build new pipeline for Chevron gas

The country will build a new gas pipeline to bring output from Chevron Corporation fields to Dhaka and Western regions even as it combats shortages. Gas Transmission Company (GTCL) signed an agreement with MAN Industries (India) to construct a 137 km gas transmission pipe line. The project to be implemented by 2013, at a cost of $201 million, will be funded by the Bangladesh government. The pipeline will be used to transport additional gas, which is to be produced by Chevron at Bibiyana and Jalalabad gas fields as well as a potential new gas reserve at Sunetra. All these fields are located at Sylhet region, north east of Dhaka. Last year the Bangladesh energy authority asked Chevron to raise gas production by 500 million cubic feet (mmcft) a day to offset shortages. The new pipeline is designed for a total capacity of 850 mmcft and will ensure additional gas supply to Dhaka and Western regions of the country. The country produces about 2,000 mmcft gas a day against the demand of over 2,500 mmcft a day.
