According to an analysis, it ispossible to quickly solve the gascrisis in Chittagong throughbringing gas from the middle part of the country. Bakhrabad-Chittagonggas pipeline can at best transmit 250MMCFD of gas, which can be sup-plied entirely to Chittagong if thedemand of Comilla and Noakhali canbe met with local supplies. But there isa concern whether Chittagong wouldagain have to face gas deficit if gas hasto be supplied through the newpipeline from Bakhrabad toSiddhirganj. GTCL managing directorAminur Rahman said the gas produc-tion is increasing with the growingdemand while pipeline capacitywould be increased after installation of two compressor stations by 2013.
Chittagong, which is considered as the lifeline of Bangladesh economy, hasbeen facing acute energy crisis for a long time. Operations of the country
’ 
s topseaport and numerous heavy industries are being hampered. Gas supply isalmost half of the city
’ 
s demand. Electricity supply falls short of demand as well.Both power and gas demand are increasing in the busy commercial city wherenew gas connections remained suspended for the last three years. There ishardly any sign that the situation would improve in the foreseeable period of time, at least during the remaining period of the present government with only alittle more than one year left. However, government officials are still confidentthat it would be possible to mitigate the energy crisis of Chittagong throughimporting LNG, an initiative taken to implement by this year. They now hope toimport LNG from January 2014. Experts stressed the need for a coordinatedlong-term initiative to solve the crisis ensuring that the bureaucracy would notcause any delay in implementation of the projects. They think it may bepossible in the long run to solve the power crisis through importing coal, butthere is no alternative to increased gas supply for maintaining industrialproduction.
