KAMTA Gas Field
Kamta gas field is located in Kaliganj upazila under Gazipur district about 17 km away to the north from the capital city of Bangladesh, Dhaka. Kamta gas field was discovered by Petrobangla in 1982. Total recoverable gas reserves of this field is 50 billion cubic feet (BCF). Commercial gas production from this field was started in 1984. Average 20 million cubic feet of gas was produced daily since inception while it was reduced to 3 million cubic feet daily in 1988 due to excessive water production and for the same reason gas production was suspended from this field in 1991. Total gas production from this field till 26th August, 1991 was 21.10 billion cubic feet.
Upon the result of on-going 2-D seismic survey over Kamta gas field necessary steps to enhance gas production substantially and maintain uninterrupted supply of natural gas will be taken later.
