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.
Most of the oil is imported, as national production only covers 7% of the country's needs. The imports mainly consist of oil products (close to 79%). Oil product imports have more than doubled since 2000.
Prices were rising in nominal terms before 2014, although less than inflation. The Government aims to cut BPDB's losses, since the average sales price is lower than the production costs, and to overcome power shortages through investments. In 2014 the Government raised power tariffs by an average of 7%.
Energy consumption per capita is 0.25 toe, including around 410 kWh of electricity (2017).
The country's overall energy consumption is increasing quickly (4%/year since 2010), driven by rapid economic growth (6.7%/year). Its progression, however, is 40% lower than the GDP, resulting in a rapid decrease of its energy intensity (-2.7%/year).
Issues & Prospects
Eastern Refinery Ltd, a subsidiary of BPC, plans to increase capacity of its refinery in Chittagong, from 3 to 4.5 Mt/year and awarded a contract for the expansion in 2016.
