The people of Chattogram have been facing severe gas crisis as its supply from Karnaphuli Gas Distribution Company Ltd has reached the lowest level recently.
The region is now getting, on average, 100 million cubic feet of gas per day (mmcfd) against the demand for about 500 mmcfd.
KGDCL has not adequate gas supply from the national grid, company sources said.
Power generation and fertilizer production in the gas-fired plants remain fully suspended.
Commercial enterprises, gas filling stations and a large number of domestic gas consumers are also suffering a lot due to acute gas crisis in the city.
Officials at KGDCL said the gas transmission pipeline from Bakhrabad to Chattogram suffers from gas pressure.
