The government is planning to supply gas from Bhola to national grid using the advantage of Padma Bridge, said State Minister for Power and Energy Nasrul Hamid.

 

Now, the Shahbazpur gas field, known as Bhola gas field, produces 63.5mmcfd of natural gas daily. The gas is used by public and private power plants due to the absence of a national grid connection with Bhola.

 

The Padma Bridge has created new opportunities to supply the gas into national grid as the government has a plan to explore new wells at Bhola North and South.

 

Nasrul Hamid said any organization in energy sector would be able to go ahead with it if the company could take the project timely.

 

“We are facing different problems and incurring losses due to delay in taking projects,” he said.

 

He was addressing at the Annual Performance Agreement (APA) between the energy and mineral resources division (EMRD) and its agencies and organizations at the Secretariat in Dhaka recently.
