The government of Bangladesh may convert the offshore Sangu field in the Bay of Bengal into an underground gas storage depot, Bangladeshi newspaper The Financial Express reported on Friday.

State-owned Petrobangla will first conduct a feasibility study for the project, which would have a capacity of 13.82 billion cubic metres and has caught the interest of ExxonMobil.

The Bangladeshi government previously considered turning the retired Sangu gas platform into an LNG import facility.
