Gas Transmission Company Limited

The idea for creation of National Gas Transmission Company was conceived in the year 1987 on the basis of recommendation made by Coopers and Librand Associated, a Consultant appointed by DFID ( the then ODA) as a co-financier of multi-donor (IDA,CIDA,OPEC) funded Second Gas Development Project (SGDP). The terms of reference of the Consultant was to review the structure of Petrobangla and its companies concurrently with the Financial, Legal and Administrative framework and make recommendation for necessary changes, Accordingly they proposed to create a number of companies including a National Gas Transmission Company .

The separation of transmission from distribution is a very common practice where multi-field production is to be piped over a large geographical area to a number of distribution region.
