Chattogram LNG supply rises as RasGas vessel docks

Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) supply to the port city of Chattogram increased again to around 300 million cubic feet per day (mmcfd) from Sunday.

A senior official of State-owned gas Karnaphuli Gas Distribution Company Ltd (KGDCL) said Gas supply in Chattogram fell to around 200 mmcfd until Wednesday afternoon and then it dropped to around 100 mmcfd on Thursday and continued until Saturday afternoon.

KGDCL, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Petrobangla, is responsible for supplying natural gas to the port city of Chattogram.

RasGas’s LNG-carrying vessel finally docked at Moheshkhali’s floating LNG import terminal on Saturday after a three-day struggle due to rough sea, said a senior Petrobangla official.

The second commercial LNG vessel carried around 140,000 cubic metres of LNG to the floating LNG terminal on September 19 and was supposed to dock by September 20 and initiate re-gasifying LNG.

The state-run corporation had to count losses as it would have to pay full charge for re-gasifying 500 mmcfd of gas, no matter it re-gasifies less or the maximum of its capacity.
