Low gas pressure in Dhaka due to rain
Domestic gas users in Dhaka city and its adjoining areas have experienced low supply pressures in the last two days due to heavy rainfall. Officials of Titas gas, the entity responsible for supplying gas in the greater Dhaka region, said the situation was mainly being reported by consumers whose household chores had been badly affected. “We have been facing the problem for the last two days, so cooking has become an uphill task,” said Halima Khatun, a housewife residing in Mohammadpur. “We are currently preparing daily meals using an electric cooker.” Kitchen burners could not be lit before late afternoon in many areas in the city, including Kafrul, Shewrapara, Taltola, Shyamoli, East Rajabazar, Kollayanpur, Kazipara, Jatrabari, Khilgaon, Malibagh and Mohammadpur. “Low pressure of gas caused by condensation is reported in some submerged areas as temperature of pipelines dropped significantly, hampering smooth supply of gas,” said Titas Gas Transmission and Distribution Company Limited Manager (public relations) Mohammad Wahiduzzaman. Natural-gas condensate is a low-density mixture of hydrocarbon liquids that are present as gaseous components in the raw natural gas produced from gas fields. “We hope that the situation will become normal when the incessant rainfall ends and the inclement weather disappears,” he added. Long queues were also seen in front of CNG filling stations in the capital. “I failed to get my CNG-run three-wheeler refilled despite spending several hours in a number of filling stations since early morning, as it was raining heavily then,” said Boni Adam, an auto-rickshaw driver. “Due to the situation, I could not make my targeted money until afternoon.”
