Another 20 million cubic feet of gas is being added to the national grid. By May 10, around 17 million to 19 million cubic feet of gas per day will be added to the national grid from well no. 7 of Kailashtilla Gas Field, said Sylhet Gas Fields Limited.

According to sources, the discovery of at least 17 million to 0.9 million cubic feet of gas per day and 187 barrels of condensate per day have been confirmed by logging, perfusion and testing in the Lower Gas Sand Zone by working over the well at Kailashtilla-7. 

The current zone of this well can produce gas for several years. The remaining extractable gas reserves of the Lower Gas Sand Zone at Kailashtila Field are 758 billion cubic feet. The remaining gas will be produced through various wells in phases.

State Minister for Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Nasrul Hamid said gas exploration activities have been extended. Initiatives have been taken to search both Horizontal and Vertical. Deep Drilling can get better results. 

So far, 7 wells have been drilled in the Kailashtilla Gas Field of Sylhet Gas Fields Limited (SGFL). Of this, 29 million cubic feet of gas is being produced daily from two running wells and supplied to the national grid.
