Located 50 km away from Dhaka, and 6 km away from the Dhaka-Sylhet highway, the Narsingdi Satellite was created to ensure the supply of LPG in and around the Narsingdi district as an alternative to natural gas. With a combined storage capacity of nearly 100 MT, it will act as a bottling and distribution facility; when complete, the bottling capacity of the plant will be approximately 2400 cylinder/8 hr. shift, close to 19000 MT per annum.
During and after development, the plant will have the following socio-economic effects:
The satellite plant will act as a rapid bottling depot for neighboring areas
It will contribute towards providing a stable LPG supply, reducing the use for natural gas in both domestic and industrial sectors
It will fulfill the energy demands for surrounding areas and encourage usage of LPG as a reliable and alternative fuel source
The project (and plant) will create employment, not just primary but secondary as well, creating hundreds of jobs through linked industries like trading and transportation
The plants proximity to the highway will allow rapid and easy deliver to consumers in the area
