Gas outages and low pressure are two major problems Dhaka dwellers face often, with the crisis worsening every winter and also at times during rainy season

Gas supply to the Tejgaon Rail Station area, Tejkunipara, West Nakhalpara and their surrounding neighbourhoods will be suspended for 12 hours from 8am to 8pm on Thursday.

In a press release, Titas Gas Transmission and Distribution Company Ltd (TGTDCL) on Wednesday made the announcement, saying all household, commercial, CNG, and industrial consumers will suffer the outage till 8pm on Thursday.

According to TGTDCL, the service disruption will happen for the tie-in installation and relocation of pipelines stretching from Mohakhai bus terminal and Moghbazar rail crossing, to facilitate route alignment of Dhaka’s Elevated Expressway Project.

Gas outages and low pressure are two major problems Dhaka dwellers face often, with the crisis worsening every winter and also at times during rainy season.

Consumers also face problems due to the installation and replacement of gas pipelines on a regular basis, mainly because of the slack coordination between utility agencies and development projects.

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

With 2,865,907 consumers, including 45 power plants, three fertilizer factories, 1,680 captive power producers, and 5,279 industrial units, TGTDCL supplies gas under seven categories to the Dhaka and Mymensingh divisions.

TGTDCL household consumer number is 2,846,419 currently, with the number of commercial and CNG users standing at 12,075 and 394 respectively.
