Tengratilla Gas Field in Bangladesh Continues to Burn

  • Matiur Chowdhury

The blaze triggered by a blowout at Tengratila gas field continued with the same fury for the second day on Saturday, sending the flames up to 150 feet high amid a moderate rainfall throughout the day. Officials of Canadian company Niko or Bapex (Bangladesh Petroleum Exploration Corporation) were yet to take any steps to extinguish the fire that started in a relief well following an explosion in the early hours Friday. Panicked people of the nearby villages demonstrated in the area yesterday afternoon, demanding adequate safety measures in and around the gas field. They also demanded adequate compensation within three days as the blowout and fire forced them out of their houses.
