Gas outages and low pressure remain as two major problems city dwellers face very often

Gas supply to parts of Karwan Bazar, Green Road, and West Tejturi Bazar will remain suspended for 10 hours on Monday due to relocation of gas pipelines for tie-in installation.

Household, commercial, and industrial consumers in the aforementioned areas will suffer gas outages from 10am to 8pm, says a  Titas Gas Transmission and Distribution Company Ltd (TGTDCL) press release issued on Sunday.

Gas outages and low pressure remain as two major problems that city dwellers face very often, with the crisis worsening every winter.

Consumers also face problems due to the installation and replacement of gas pipelines on a regular basis, mainly owing to lack of coordination between the city’s utility agencies.

The TGTDCL is already facing a shortfall of at least 300mmcfd against a demand total of around 2,200mmcfd. In the Dhaka metropolitan area alone, demand is around 1,700mmcfd.

With 2,783,134 consumers, including 44 power plants, 1,630 captive power producers, and 5,128 industrial units, the TGTDCL supplies gas in eight categories to the Dhaka and Mymensingh divisions.

The number of Titas household users is 2,764,247, while the number of commercial users stands at 11,688.
