Institutions & Energy Policy
The Ministry of Power, Energy and Mineral Resources (MPEMR) is responsible for the energy sector. Its Power Division is responsible for power-related policies, while the Energy and Mineral Resources Division is responsible for gas, petroleum products and coal.
The Ministry of Finance approves the investments in the energy sector.
Petrobangla (Bangladesh Oil, Gas and Mineral Corp) is the national fuel company. It is involved in all oil, natural gas and coal exploration/production projects. Petrobangla operates via several subsidiaries, of which 3 for oil and gas E&P (1 for oil and 2 for gas), 1 for gas transmission, 6 for gas distribution, 1 for LNG, 1 for CNG & LPG, and 1 for coal mining.
Natural gas production has been declining slightly since 2016 and reached 26.8 bcm in 2019 (-1%/year). It increased rapidly until 2016 (6%/year over 2010-2016), reaching 27.7 bcm.
In 2019, the BERC raised gas prices for all types of consumers by 33%, to help Petrobangla reduce its massive losses. In June of 2020, natural gas prices reached US$1.4c/kWh for households and US$1.2c/kWh for businesses.
Energy consumption per capita is 0.28 toe, including around 449 kWh of electricity (2019).
The country's overall energy consumption is increasing quickly (4.8%/year since 2010), driven by rapid economic growth (6.9%/year). Its progression, however, is 30% lower than the GDP, resulting in a rapid decrease of its energy intensity (-1.9%/year).
Issues & Prospects
Due to the current gas deficit, estimated at more than 5 mcm/d, the Government has suspended new gas connections to industrial, commercial and household consumers since 2009 and is trying to increase gas production and develop gas imports.
The Vision 2021 Plan reported a 50% probability of discovering new gas reserves of 32 Tcf (906 bcm).
