State Minister for Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Nasrul Hamid says the sudden discontinuation of gas supply to CNG refuelling stations nationwide due to maintenance of a gas field is a ‘temporary’ problem.
There is, however, no problem with the power supply, he told reporters at his Secretariat office on Wednesday.
He said that they had announced earlier Bibiyana gas field would undergo maintenance. We did notify everyone before the Eid and even gave notifications in newspapers.
Saying he was aware of the temporary crisis at the CNG refuelling stations,Nasrul said, It won’t last long. This is only for 24 hours; from 12am Wednesday to 12am Thursday.
The sudden decision by Titas Gas Transmission and Distribution Company to stop the supply for 24 hours due to the maintenance at Bibiyana created a transport chaos in many parts of Bangladesh including Dhaka since Tuesday midnight.
