Tokyo Gas to study land-based LNG terminal feasibility in Bangladesh

Japan’s biggest city gas supplier, Tokyo Gas, in a joint venture with Nippon Koei, has been contracted to perform a feasibility and engineering study for a land-based LNG terminal in Bangladesh. 

The contract was secured through the company’s unit Tokyo Gas Engineering Solution for Bangladesh’s state-owned, Bangladesh Oil, Gas & Mineral Corporation (Petrobangla).

According to Tokyo Gas, Bangladesh is looking to secure supply of natural gas to cover the rising demand, with a land-based receiving terminal providing more security compared to the FSRU-based terminals, currently being developed, that can be affected by adverse weather conditions.

Contract value has not been revealed, however, Tokyo Gas did say the work is to be performed over a one-year period starting in July 2017 and ending in July next year.

Under the contract, Tokyo Gas and Nippon Koei, Japanese construction consultancy, will examine the feasibility of constructing a land-based LNG terminal in Bangladesh, in coastal area sites Petrobangla has already shortlisted, Tokyo Gas’ statement reads.

The construction of Bangladesh’s first LNG terminal is set to start in the fourth quarter of 2017, offshore Moheshkhali Island in the Bay of Bengal.

Excelerate Energy that is co-developing Bangladesh’s first LNG import terminal with the International Finance Corporation (IFC) for state-owned Petrobangla, will provide one of its existing FSRUs with a 138,000 cubic meters storage capacity.
