Bangladesh: No Gas for Eight Proposed Large & Medium Power Plants

...Petrobangla has informed the Power Development Board that it will not be possible to supply gas to the plants.

The country is likely to face an acute gas shortage by 2011 and with the current reserve of gas it will not be possible to supply gas to a number of proposed power plants,...

‘It will be a major setback for the power sector, if the eight big power plants could not be installed because of gas shortage, as the country is facing a huge power shortage,’ said a Power Division official, adding that the division planned to add more than 5,000MW power to the national grid by 2012.

Peak oil/gas is squeezing the third world countries first. With population growth and rising demand there simply isn't enough capacity and even when projects are planned and funded there may not be the necessary supplies. I'm not sure if nuclear power is an option for Bangladesh, but options are few.

So the country will face a gas shortage? Do you know what economic situation is like in Bangladesh?

Sure it would but not being able to afford gas has very little to do with a shortage of gas and everything to do with it's artificially high price...

The first world rulers is squeezing everyone, including their own citizens , but this is obviously felt first in the third world. How this geopolitical ploy can be related to a real in the ground shortage of either oil or gas i still do not understand.


With population growth and rising demand there simply isn't enough capacity and even when projects are planned and funded there may not be the necessary supplies.


When a countries people are being exploited by more powerful countries rulers they tend to do what they can to keep energy supplies tightly under control and these days that can be done by manipuating just a few markets that determines the price of oil and too a large extent gas.


I'm not sure if nuclear power is an option for Bangladesh, but options are few.


They do not have the money for either but when they do scrape it together by making real compromises elsewhere they still become subject to speculative market forces that drives up the prices of much needed raw materials. There is little defense against that so it hardly matters how they attempt to generate energy.

Not too sure, but it couldn't be stellar (pardon the pun) since so many of their people come to Malaysia for employment. Ironically enough, at gas stations, filling up taxi cabs here with natural gas.
