Energy experts have questioned Bangladesh’s focus on importing LNG while 22 of its 26 offshore blocks remain unexplored, according to the Dhaka Tribune.

The experts, including academics and geologists, voiced their concerns at an event held by the Trading Corporation of Bangladesh regarding hikes in the price of gas.

They think the government should focus on making offshore exploration more attractive and lure international companies to find and produce gas domestically rather than rely on imports.
