Bangladesh, India agree to cooperate in energy sector
Bangladesh and India have agreed to cooperate in preventing energy crisis and strengthening relations between the two countries. The pledge was made at the second secretary-level dialogue on energy security at a hotel in Dhaka on Saturday. Energy and Mineral Resources Secretary Nazim Uddin Chowdhury led the Bangladesh delegation while his Indian counterpart KD Tripathi led the India one at the dialogue that focused on a number of energy-related issues between the two countries, which will likely be discussed during Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s forthcoming visit to India. The issues discussed include the exploration by ONCC Videsh Ltd in Bangladesh’s offshore blocks in the Bay of Bengal, construction of a re-gasified liquefied natural gas (RLNG) terminal by Indian company Petronet, proposal of Indian Oil Corporation Ltd (IOCL) for supplying RLNG, getting connected with the TAPI (Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India) gas pipeline project, and establishing a liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) plant and terminal in Chittagong by the IOCL. According to a press release of Bangladesh’s Ministry of Power, Energy and Mineral Resources, India at the dialogue proposed to export petrochemical wax to Bangladesh. The first secretary-level dialogue was held in New Delhi in June last year. The third one has been slated for March, 2018.
