Fenchuganj gas field brings new supply in Jan
State-owned Bangladesh Petroleum Exploration and Production Company Limited (BAPEX) has made new gas discoveries in the Fenchuganj gas field.
The oil and gas exploration agency struck gas while conducting a test to get the size of the reserve and assess the daily supply volume that may come from a newly-drilled well on Sunday, BAPEX managing director Murtaza Ahmed Faruque said.
“It takes about one month to supply gas from a well after conducting the test. To this effect, it would be possible to start the supply by January-end,” he said indicating 35 million cubic feet gas may be supplied from the well which will be 81st in the list of the running wells in the country. A total of 20 million cubic feet gas is currently supplied from the gas field daily now and new addition will make the gas field a more important supply source to the nation.
