Gas crisis persists as Titas struggles to repair pipeline damage

Residents of Dhaka saw no end to their sufferings from an acute gas crisis as the Titas Gas Transmission & Distribution Company Limited struggled to repair a damage left in their pipeline by road development work almost two days ago.

‘We still do not know how long it may take for the damage to repair,’ Titas managing director Ali Iqbal Md Nurullah told New Age around 5:00pm on Wednesday, 43 hours after the damage was caused.

The line damaged 15 feet underground was exposed but water continued to seep into the hole which was dug for repairing the damage, preventing the restoration work, he said.

Iqbal explained the situation from the field where the pipeline was damaged at Aminbazar, Savar around 10:00pm on Monday night.

Titas said that the damage was caused during the roads and highways department’s development work.

The repair work could not begin in full swing until in the afternoon on Tuesday because of VIP movement on the occasion of the golden jubilee of Bangladesh’s independence.

The unannounced disruption in gas supply brought immense suffering to the inhabitants of the capital where about 70 per cent of the country’s domestic gas consumers live.

The line that got damaged supplies about 100mmcfd gas to the consumers in the capital, where the overall gas consumption is around 1,700mmcfd.

The gas supply in the morning on Wednesday was very weak and it got weaker by the hour and around noon it became almost non-existent.

‘My cooking stove is completely dead. The stove is not even giving a faint hiss,’ said Nasima Akter, a resident of Dhanmondi.

Titas gas officials said that the gas crisis hit more or less the entire capital and it had earlier made an announcement about fixing the problem by Tuesday night.

‘We had ordered food online on Tuesday night and skipped breakfast on Wednesday,’ said Khadiza Yasmin, a resident of Mohammadpur.

The crisis triggered a surge in the sale of restaurant food.

The crisis is also causing many to eat less for a large number of people living in the capital are poor and cannot afford to eat outside home.
