The commissioning of the Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) is expected to be held on July 4 next.
Officials at Rupantarita Prakritik Gas Company Limited (RPGCL) said that everything has been completed. They expected the gas supply to begin with nearly 100 million cft. Gradually, the volume of supply will increase to 500 million cft daily.
According to Karnaphuli Gas distribution Company Limited (KGDCL) the total demand of Chattogram is more than 400 mcft daily. But, KGDCL is now getting nearly 220 mcft from the national grid.
With the increase of supply of LNG in Chattogram, the supply from the national grid to the port city would be stopped.
After fulfilling the demand of the port city, the rest of the gas will be supplied to Dhaka.
