Countrywide electricity load shedding and the natural gas crisis will likely continue at least for the next couple of days, until the resumption of operation of one of the FSRUs at Moheshkhali Island in the Bay of Bengal.

The second floating, storage and re-gasification units (FSRU), which went deep sea ahead of the landfall of the cyclone Mocha, might become operational within the next 10–12 days, State Minister for Power, Energy and Mineral Resources (MPEMR) Nasrul Hamid told newsmen at his secretariat office Sunday.

He said the overall electricity supply won’t be as bad as it was as of Saturday night, without elaborating on the reason.

The country’s electricity and natural gas supplies will start getting back to normalcy after a couple of days with the resumption of liquefied natural gas (LNG) re-gasification from one FSRU, he said.

Both the FSRUs will come online after 10–12 days, he said.

Mr Hamid thanked the Almighty, as the cyclone did not do any significant damage.
