Bangladesh, Oman to sign deal for LNG today

State owned Petrobangla is set to sign an agreement today for importing Natural Liquefied Gas (LNG) from Oman aimed at ensuring energy security in the country.

Senior Information Officer of Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry Mir Mohammad Aslam Uddin said that the agreement to this effect would formally be inked at a ceremony at Petrobangla Bhaban in Dhaka.

The Petrobangla, he said, would sign the agreement with Oman Trading International, a state-owned organisation.

State Minister for Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Nasrul Hamid would witness the signing ceremony as the chief guest.

Besides, the government is importing a total of 500 mmcfd of LNG from Qatar to meet the country’s growing demand.

The LNG would be added into the national grid from this month. Earlier, the government signed a long term contract with Qatar’s RasGas for 1.8 million tonnes of LNG per annum.
