Bangladesh onshore LNG site selection study

The project consisted of the development of a conventional onshore LNG import terminal for the importation, storage and re-gasification of liquefied natural gas and subsequent send-out of the natural gas to power plants via a gas network grid.


A site visit to three potential LNG terminal locations and site screening have been undertaken to ascertain a preferred site for the development of an onshore LNG terminal in Bangladesh. The site selection took into account a range of metocean parameters such as wind, waves, bathymetry, topography, currents potential for dredging, existing shipping and environmental restrictions. GIS constraint mapping has been used to analyse and present the results. 

The site selection report covered a high level review of data from available reports and provide site visit observations, identifying the constraints and preparation of constraint maps, methodology of site screening process and multi criteria matrix evaluation (MCE), sensitivity analysis of MCE, and conclusions / recommendations on site that is the most suitable for locating an onshore LNG Import Terminal.
