EIA study of Ashugonj-Bakhrabad-Chittagong gas transmission pipeline
2009 - 2010
Conducted environmental and social impact assessment study of the Ashugonj-Bakhrabad-Chittagong gas transmission pipeline with TOR from the Gas Transmission and Distribution Company (GTCL) with ADB financing. Alternate routes were analyzed by CEGIS, based on which EIA study for the selected route was carried out. Environmental and social baseline was established for the entire length of the transmission route. This was followed by assessing the impacts of the gas transmission pipeline on the environmental and social components during pre-construction, construction and post-construction phases. An environmental management plan was developed suggesting mitigation measures for the negative impacts, enhancement measures for the positive impacts, compensation for the negative impacts whci could not be mitigated, contingency plan for accidental events and an environmental monitoring plan.
