An additional 8 million cubic feet of gas per day (mmcf/d) has been added to the national grid from a previously abandoned well of Sylhet’s Beanibazar gas field.
The gas has been supplied to the national transmission line on Monday (November 29) evening and 8 mmcf of gas is being supplied from the first day.
Sylhet Gas Field Limited (SGFL) General Manager (Administration) Abdul Jalil Pramanik confirmed this to the media.
He said that the gas supply to the transmission line was supposed to start on Monday morning.
“But on the advice of experts, we flow out the gas throughout the day. After that we started supplying the national transmission line from 6 pm,” he added.
He also said that they completed all the experimental work on Sunday afternoon. After the gas pressure test (testing) work, all the technical preparations have been completed for gas supply to the national grid at the final stage.
According to SGFL sources, there are two wells in Beanibazar under Sylhet Gas Field. Production from well no 1 started in 1999 and was closed in 2014.
