Gas Reserves in Bangladesh Depleting Rapidly
"Bangladesh’s gas reserves are in danger of depleting sooner than projected. Every sector in the country is guilty of misusing gas, which is resulting in severe gas supply constraints. A prepaid system for the domestic use of gas may have prevented misuse in the form of people not turning off their burners, but the Bangladeshi government never tried to seriously implement such a system. It is estimated that if only 1% of efficiency can be achieved via industrial boilers, then 95 million cubic feet of gas can be saved per month. Today, about 6,000 industries consume nearly 1,020 cubic feed of gas per day – 95% of that comes from boilers. "
