Gas supply from two floating terminals of liquefied natural gas (LNG) will remain suspended from 11:00 pm on Friday due to the impact of the super cyclone Mocha, said a press release of the Ministry of Power, Energy and Mineral Resources.

As a result, the gas supply to the Chittagong and Comilla regions will be disrupted on Saturday.

However, supply will resume soon after considering the situation, reports UNB.

As a consequence, the operation of gas-fired power stations will remain off or partially closed in Chittagong, Megnaghat, Haripur, and Siddhirganj areas.

State Minister for Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Nasrul Hamid regretted for the temporary inconvenience.

Gas and power supply will be normal in earliest possible time, he said.
