Bakhrabad Gas Distribution Company Ltd (BGDCL), a company of Petrobangla under the Ministry of Power, Energy & Mineral Resources, Government of the People's Republic of Bangladesh, was incorporated on 7 June, 1980 with an authorized capital of Tk. 3 billion, with the government providing the total equity requirement of the company. The registered head office of the government-owned company is located at its own complex at Comilla.
BGDCL was established with three-fold responsibilities of production, transmission and distribution of natural gas to south-east Bangladesh (excluding Brahrmnanbaria district) through the development of Bakhrabad Gas field and construction of Bakhrabad-Chittagong gas transmission pipe line. Later, BGDCL also gave the responsibility to develop Feni gas field and to construct Bakhrabad-Demra gas transmission pipeline to supply gas in the Titas system to meet the increasing demand of gas in greater Dhaka. On successful completion of these projects, BGDCL started its commercial operation in its franchise area on 20 May, 1984 and gas supply to Titas system from 16 September, 1985.
Present Status: The gas production activities of the company relating to Bakhrabad and Feni gas fields were transferred to Bangladesh Gas Fields Company Limited (BGFCL) in May, 1989 under a reorganization plan of Petrobangla. Since then the major activities of BGDCL confined to transmission and distribution of gas. As per government decision BGDCL has handed over its main transmission lines to Gas Transmission Company Limited (GTCL) in the month of November, 2003 and as a result BGDCL is now engaged only with the gas distribution and marketing responsibilities.
Franchise Area: At present BGDCL covers its gas supply network in the adjacent towns, municipalities and upazillas of the districts of Comilla, Chandpur, Feni, Noakhali, Lakshmipur, Ashuganj. Besides, gas supply has been extended to Kasba and Bancharampur upazilas of Brahmanbaria district.
Authorized Capital: The company fetched its first profit during 1994 though the commercial activities of the company commenced during FY 1984—85. In view of volume of investment, the Government has raised the company's authorized capital from Tk. 3 billion to Tk. 5 billion in 1990 and Tk. 8 billion in 1994.
The company was originally established as a production and marketing company, with the Bakhrabad gas field as its source. Later, it was transformed in to an exclusive marketing company with the transfer of the Bakhrabad gas field to BGFCL. The company operates in the Chittagong Division area excluding Brahmanbaria. The major trunk line of the company is the 24", 110 km Bakhrabad-Chittagong pipeline. The network has about 3553.75km pipelines which include 67.46 km transmission, 146.19 km distribution and rest feeder mains and service lines. Up to July 2014, BGSL had a customer base of 324808. During that time 2013-14 fiscal year BGDCL sold 3151.710 MMCM gas to its customers, of which power and fertilizer plants consumed about 2220.080 MMCM and 302.960 MMCM respectively. The non-bulk and domestic customer base of BGDCLL accounted for the rest.)  => Array ( [name] => Kazi & Kazi Tea Estate [post_id] => 3015 [post_link] => http://offroadbangladesh.com/places/kazi-kazi-tea-estate/ [thumb_link] => http://offroadbangladesh.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/Kazi-and-Kazi-Tea-Estate-5-300x201.jpg [post_content] =>
