State Minister for the Ministry of Power, Energy, and Mineral Resources Nasrul Hamid has expressed hope that 20-25 million cubic feet of gas will be available daily from Tobgi-1 well of Shahbazpur gas field in Bhola.

He expressed this hope in a Facebook post after inaugurating the well digging on Friday.

The state minister said that under this project, 2 more exploration wells Elisha-1 and Bhola North-2 will be dug soon.

He said that the government has strengthened domestic energy exploration activities. To this end, we plan to drill 46 new exploration, development and workover wells during 2022-25.

Nasrul Hamid said, after assuming responsibility in 2009, under the leadership of the current government, the Energy Department has so far drilled 21 explorations, 50 development and 56 workover wells. By the hands of Awami League government Bangladesh got 5 new gas fields.

The state minister also said that due to emphasis on domestic mineral resource exploration, our gas production increased to 2750 million cubic feet per day (MMCF) in 2018, which was 1,744 MMCF per day in 2009.

He said that due to the decrease in the reserves of the wells, although the production has decreased slightly, the daily natural gas supply of Bangladesh including LNG is about 3,300 million cubic feet.
