Titas Gas Field
A Process Plant of Titas Gas Field
Titas gas field is located some 100 Km away to the direction of northern-east from capital city of Bangladesh, Dhaka. It lies at the skirt of the Brahmanbaria district town. This field was discovered by Pakistan Shell Oil Company in 1962. The structure is an elongate north-south asymmetrical anticline measuring about 19x10 square km with a vertical closure of 500m. As per latest Petrobangla re-estimation, total recoverable gas reserve of Titas gas field is 7,582 billion cubic feet (BCF). Commercial gas production from this field was commenced in 1968 and till December 31, 2016 total 4267.037 billion cubic feet gas or 56.27% of reserves has been recovered.
Out of total 26 (twenty six) nos. gas wells drilled so far in this field 9 (nine) are vertical wells and the remaining 17 (seventeen) are directional wells. The wells are spread (surface location) at 7 (seven) different locations stretched over about 11 km distance. In December 2016, average 500.04 million cubic feet of gas is produced daily from 21 wells of this field and processed through 8 nos. glycol dehydration type, 4 nos. Low Temperature Separation (LTS) type and 2 nos. LTS with glycol dehydration type process plants and supplied to the transmission pipelines of Titas Gas Transmission & Distribution Co. Ltd. (TGTDCL) and Gas Transmission Company Ltd. (GTCL). About 346 bbls condensate is produced daily with gas as by-product. In December 2016, average condensate/gas ratio of this field is 0.735 bbls/million cubic feet and water/gas ratio is 0.800 bbl/million cubic feet (excluding well no Titas 12, 13 & 21). Titas well no.3 was Plugged & Abandoned by snubbing operation on 25.02.2008 to prevent gas seepage from nearby locality.
Condensate produced from Titas gas field (about 368 bbls per day), Narsingdi gas field (about 47.04 bbls per day) & Habiganj gas field (about 9.25 bbls per day) of BGFCL and about 100 bbls heavy condensate from Beanibazar gas field of SGFL are fractionated into MS (Petrol) and HSD (Diesel) through two fractionation plants at this field having plant capacity of 500 bbls each. The products are being sold to Padma Oil Company Ltd.
