From May 10, the government-owned Sylhet Gas Fields Limited (SGFL) will supply roughly 20 million cubic feet of gas per day (mmcfd) to the national grid. Nasrul Hamid, the State Minister for Power, Energy, and Mineral Resources, announced that from May 10, it will be feasible to harvest 17-19 million cubic feet of gas from the Kailashtila Gas Field in Sylhet.
Meanwhile, the ministry released a press release stating that a work-over operation involving logging, perfection, and testing in the lower gas sand zone of the Koilashtila gas field indicated roughly 17-19 MMCFD gas and 187 barrels of condensates.
The current zone of the gas field is likely to continue gas production for several years, according to the ministry, with 758 billion cubic feet of recoverable gas reserves in the Koilashtila field that might be gradually produced through several wells. Gas exploration activities have been intensified, according to the state minister, with initiatives to conduct both horizontal and vertical drilling.
According to data from Petrobangla, the country produces roughly 2324.7 mmcfd of gas per day, with three domestic businesses producing around 691 mmcfd, two International Oil Companies (IOC) producing around 945 mmcfd, and the country importing around 688.1 mmcfd per day.
