Full scale gas supply from one of the Maheshkhali floating LNG terminals, which remained off from May 11 due to the impact of cyclonic storm Mocha, resumed on Saturday.

Aslam Alam, public relations officer (information officer) of Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry, said the operation of one of the floating LNG terminal in Mahishkhali of Cox’s Bazar district resumed on Saturday night.

Earlier, the gas supply from the two LNG terminals in Maheshkhali remained suspended due to the impact of Cyclone Mocha from May 11.

On May 16, the authorities resumed the operation of one the floating LNG terminals.

With the resumption of gas supply from the second floating LNG terminal, some 800 million cubic feet of gas (mmcfd) is being added to the national pipeline from the two LNG terminals.

People of the country, especially the residents of Chattogram, faced frequent load shedding for several days due to the suspension of the gas supply from two LNG terminals.

Production in many factories also remained suspended due to the lack of gas supply.
