Natural gas and oil There are 22 discovered gas fields in Bangladesh of various sizes. The total reserve of 20 gas fields is about 26 Tcf (trillion cubic feet). Gas in most of the fields is dry, in a few fields it is wet. For example at Beanibazar (16 bbl/mmcfg), Jalalabad (15 bbl/mmcfg), and Kailashtila (13 bbl/mmcfg). Currently, natural gas accounts for more than 70% of the total commercial energy consumption and the major part of the future energy demand would be met from it.…

Industry opportunity: According to U.S. EIA’s 2011 report, there are around 2,552 Tcf potential gas recourses out there to be utilized. As nature gas is more economic sustainable than other energy sources, we can see a remarkable consumption increase in nature gas since 2000. Also, the demand for nature gas always exceeds the outputs produced. The short of supply in nature gas market was mainly because of conventional technology since large portion of potential recourses was lodged far away from the earth, which can not be exploited by conventional technology. However, the recent hydraulic fracturing enables the exploitation of unconventional gas. Therefore, there is significant growth opportunity for the nature gas industry. Caprica’s competitors in market were also trying to develop the new technology to seize nature gas recourses. With five-year fracturing experience, it is Caprica’s opportunity to further expand its business and achieve their growing strategy.…
