LafargeHolcim Bangladesh in row over gas price

Print this page

Bangladesh: LafargeHolcim Bangladesh has entered into a dispute with the government-run Jalalabad Gas Transmission and Distribution Systems (JGTDS) over the price of natural gas for a captive power plant at its Chhatak cement plant. JGTDS has argued that the cement producer is paying less than the rate fixed by the country's energy regulator, according to the Financial Express newspaper. However, LafargeHolcim claims that it is paying a tariff set by a gas sales agreement (GSA) signed between JGTDSL and Lafarge Surma Cement in January 2003. The row has been referred to the Energy and Mineral Resources Division (EMRD) of the Ministry of Power, Energy and Mineral Resources for clarification.
