Outages due to relocation of gas pipelines

Gas supply will be suspended for 12 hours in Banani, Mohakhali DOHS, Shaheed Tajuddin Ahmed Avenue, East Nakhalpara, and Dhaka Cantonment Residential area for the relocation and tie-in installation of gas pipelines on Sunday.

Household, commercial, industrial, and CNG (compressed natural gas) consumers in the aforementioned areas will be deprived of gas supply from 8am, said a press release of Titas Gas Transmission and Distribution Company Limited (TGTDCL) on Saturday.

According to TGTDCL, the service disruption is for tie-in installation and relocation of pipelines stretching from Banani Rail Station to Mohakhali bus terminal, to facilitate route alignment of Dhaka’s Elevated Expressway Project.

Low gas pressure and outages are two major problems Dhaka citizens face very often, with the crisis worsening every winter, and sometimes during the rainy season.

Consumers also come across problems owing to the installation and replacement of gas pipelines on a regular basis, mainly because of a lack of coordination between utility companies and development projects.

The TGTDCL is already facing a shortfall of at least 300 mmcfd (million cubic feet per day) gas against demand of around 2,200 mmcfd. In the Dhaka metropolitan area alone, demand is close to 1,700 mmcfd.

With 2,865,907 consumers, including 45 power plants, three fertilizer factories, 1,680 captive power producers, and 5,279 industrial units, the TGTDCL supplies gas in seven categories to the Dhaka and Mymensingh divisions.

Titas currently has 2,846,419 household customers, with the number of commercial and CNG users standing at 12,075 and 394 respectively.
