The government is going to import 77,000 metric tons (578,420 barrels) of diesel from India through rail wagon to meet the domestic demand of the petroleum for a period from May -December in 2018.

According to official sources at the Energy Division, the state-owned Bangladesh Petroleum Corporation (BPC) has already completed negotiation with the Indian authorities to import the bulk petroleum.

Indian state-owned Numaligor Refinery Limited (NRL) will supply the petroleum from its Shiliguri marketing terminal through 35 wagons. Each wagon will carry 22,000 metric tons of diesel, said the BPC officials.

The price of each barrel of diesel was fixed at $79.690 on the basis of standard operative procedure (SOP) while the premium of each barrel was set at $5.50.

The price was estimated as per Plutts` reference price of diesel on March 26, 2018 of the international market. The dollar rate was estimated at Tk 83.50.

In this case, the government will spend $3.159 million (equivalent to Tk 26.38 crore) for premium of the 77,000 mt of diesel while $48.934 (equivalent to Tk 382.23 crore) for price of petroleum and Tk 1.95 crore for Insurance to import of the diesel. 

Officials said the diesel is being imported from India as part of the government`s 15-year long term deal under which a cross border pipeline is being built from Indian Numaligor refinery in Indian state of Assam to Parbotipur oil depot, located in the north-western bordering of Dinajpur of Bangladesh.
