A multi-functional modular seabed trencher developed by a Chinese firm has recently completed 100 kilometers of pipeline construction in Bangladesh's first marine pipeline project under Belt and Road Initiative, setting two world records in directional drilling and deep trenching.
Bangladesh initiated "Single-point Mooring with Double Pipelines"- project under Flagship Belt and Road Initiative during the visit of Chinese President Xi Jinping to Bangladesh in 2016 as part of development cooperation.
It was one of the top priority projects of the Energy Division as the project will substantially save fuel transportation cost along with time.
A "Single-point Mooring with Double Pipelines"- is a loading buoy anchored offshore, that serves as a mooring point and interconnect for tankers loading or offloading gas or liquid products.
The project was undertaken by the Bangladesh Petroleum Corporation (BPC) to transport imported raw petroleum to state-owned Eastern Refinery Limited (ERL) at Moheshkhali, Cox's Bazar, Chattogram.
