Abstract :

Domestic gas supply to consumers is a big concern of the government of Bangladesh as the reservation of natural gas will be exhausted within an era. To mitigate the domestic gas crisis, the government of Bangladesh has already introduced liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) as a suitable alternative energy source of natural gas for household consumers. Therefore, installation of proper gas distribution system throughout the country is essential to ensure the optimum LPG consumption maintaining adequate safety. As per depicted domestic gas distribution layouts in this study, gas distribution network installation from the regional petroleum gas stations to consumer’s premises, in lieu of thousands of separate domestic consumption layout, is the most suitable one. For instance, imported LPG storage stations or crude petroleum refining industries will act as regional petroleum gas stations from where (liquefied) petroleum gas will be distributed to consumer’s premise through piping network. In addition to regional domestic gas piping layout, several modifications in gas pipeline, gas stove and safety mountings at the domestic gas consumer’s end are recommended to ensure the safe and efficient gas consumption.
