Title:
Background
In Bangladesh, natural gas is one of the important sources of energy that accounts 75% of commercial energy of the country. Again, Bangladesh is important to world energy markets because of its large potential natural gas reserves. This resource really reduces importing fuel from other countries and saving large number of foreign currencies. All power, fertilizer and today the transport sector of Bangladesh are by no means dependent on Natural Gas. From the beginning of this century the use of CNG has discovered a new horizon in our power and energy sector. It is necessary to judge and consider all of the obstacles in the way of developing of CNG sector or other viable strategic gas utilization options. So the study of natural gas production, consumption especially about CNG and its future etc are very important. Aim and Objectives

Aim:
The main aim of this research is to identify the current scenario of Natural gas utilization in Bangladesh and generation & uses of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG). Objectives:
1.To identify present Gas energy scenario in Bangladesh.
2.To identify the generation and production scenario of CNG. 3.To assess the future demand of CNG and its strategic applications. Study Area
Bangladesh: Absolute location: With an area of about 147,570 sq km, Bangladesh is situated between latitudes 20~34' and 26~38' north and latitudes 88~01' and 92~41' east.
