Background:

Bangladesh Petroleum Corporation (BPC) is a statutory organization of the Government under the Energy & Mineral Resources Division (E&MRD) engaged to supervise, co-ordinate and control all the activities relating to import, storage, marketing and distribution of petroleum products in the country and to develop and establish infrastructure facilities in relation to petroleum. As part of its mandate BPC is also involved in import of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) and all activities related to LPG supply and distribution through different government and private sector channels.

Present LPG supply in the country is approximately 100,000 MT per year of which around 20,000 MT/year is produced in public sector. The estimated demand for LPG in the country is over 500,000 MT per year with the increase in demand being driven by the shortage of gas supply for cooking fuel.

To address the shortage of cooking fuel for households, the government has decided to take up a project for “Construction of LPG Import, Storage & Bottling Plant at Kumira or any suitable Place at Chittagong Including Import Facilities of LPG, Jetty, Pipelines & Storage Tanks under PPP” (the Project). The production capacity of this proposed Project has been planned for 100,000 MT per year.

Objective:

To establish economically feasible and least cost cooking fuel supply chain all over the country through importation of LPG to replace pipeline natural gas, kerosene and fuel woods in the country.
