Bangladesh: Natural Gas Infrastructure and Efficiency Improvement Project
The objectives of the proposed Project are to improve efficiency in gas production in Titas Gas Field and to expand gas transmission pipeline capacity between Chittagong and Bakhrabad.
The Project includes two components. Under component one, seven wellhead compressors (five operating and two stand-by) will be installed in Titas Gas Field. It is to help improve gas production efficiency to maximize recovery from Titas Gas Field. Under component two, a 181 km, 36-inch gas transmission pipeline will be constructed. The proposed pipeline will constitute a trunk transmission pipeline between Chittagong and Bakhrabad to transport regasified LNG to central and west gas markets.
