        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 April 30, 2018 total 4528.895 billion cubic feet gas or 59.73% of reserves has been recovered.

 

Out of total 27 (twenty seven) nos. gas wells drilled so far in this field 9 (Nine) are vertical wells and the remaining 18 (eighteen) are directional wells. The wells are spread (surface location) at 9 (Nine) different locations stretched over about 11 km distance. In April 2018, average 539.05 million cubic feet of gas is produced daily from 26 wells of this field and processed through 10 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). In April 2018 on average 539.05 bbls condensate is produced daily with gas as by-product. In April 2018 average condensate/gas ratio of this field is 0.841 bbls/million cubic feet and water/gas ratio is 0.801 bbl/million cubic feet (excluding well no Titas 12, 13, 21 & 22). 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 453.36 bbls per day), Narsingdi gas field (about 43.77  bbls per day) & Habiganj gas field (about 10.80 bbls per day) of BGFCL and 16 bbls condensate from Rupganj gas field of BAPEX, 131 bbls from Srekail & 98 bbls from Bangura 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.
