Find what’s undervalued now and get in on some of the games that will dictate glorious future wealth. In an exclusive interview, »
The Cost of everything has declined except for due payments and operational expenditures. This is the current scenario of the country’s energy sector. Production of gas, its supply and sell along with monthly profit have raised. Having enhanced in such a way, however, the sector is facing difficulties taking control over the operational expenditures and due payments.

Fuel price is decreased finally but the mass people won’t be able to get the benefits of this nominal price cut. Majority of the people of this country are low income and are the implicit beneficiaries of fuel price. Besides, Bangladesh doesn’t have the right managerial infrastructure to extend the advantages of price cut to the doorsteps of those people. The prices of diesel and kerosene have been brought down... »

Fossil fuels include hydro-carbon, coal, fuel oil or natural gas which are formed from the remains of dead plants and animals etc. Coal is the dominant fossil fuel occupying 40% and oil is the second dominant 37% of all fossil fuels. From 1990 to 2008, the use of fossil fuel has increased substantially. As a result the emission of carbon has risen from 6.4 Pentagrams of Carbon (PgC) per year... »
Bangladesh has been overwhelmingly dependent on her own natural gas for a long time. Imported fuel has been a minor part of its energy basket. But the recent depleting trend of the gas reserve is likely to put an end to the better years. Energy observers are pointing out that the country is gradually leaning toward imported supply of energy sources and it will not be too long before the... »
