Progress of Project Implementation: The implementation of a 30-inch 61-km pipeline parallel to A-B Pipeline is in progress under “Power and Energy Quick Supply Augmentation (Special Provision) Act, 2010” to supply additional gas to Dhaka & Chittagong areas from the gas to be received at Ashuganj from greater Sylhet areas. On completion of 61-km pipeline and 3 River Crossings (Titas, Buri & Gomati) by HDD, the pipeline was commissioned on 31-7-2015. At present 200-250 mmscfd gas from Ashuganj to Bakhrabad is transported through this pipeline for greater Dhaka and greater Chittagong areas. Contract has been signed on 29-4-2016 for installation of 3 Interface Metering Stations (Kutumbopur, Feni, and Barabkundu). About 90% of installation works have been completed of the said 3 Interface Metering Stations. It is expected that by December 2017, it will be possible to supply gas through these stations.
