Gas supply from floating LNG terminals restored after 9 days
Full-scale gas supply from one of the Moheshkhali floating LNG terminals, which remained closed since May 11 due to the impact of Cyclone Mocha, has resumed.
Mir Mohammad Aslam Uddin, public relations officer (information officer) of Power, Energy, and Mineral Resources Ministry, said the operation of one of the floating LNG terminals in Moheshkhali of Cox's Bazar district resumed last night.
The gas supply from two terminals in Maheshkhali remained suspended due to the impact of Cyclone Mocha since May 11 disrupting power supply and production in factories dependent on gas.
On May 16, the authorities resumed the operation of one of the floating LNG terminals.
With the resumption of gas supply from the second floating LNG terminal, some 800 million cubic feet of gas (mmcfd) is being added to the national pipeline from the two LNG terminals.
People of the country, especially the residents of Chattogram, faced frequent load shedding for several days due to the suspension of the gas supply from two LNG terminals.
Production in many factories also remained suspended due to the lack of gas supply.
