Bashundhara LP Gas Limited is one of the subsidiaries of the Bashundhara Group and the first private LPG bottling and marketing company in Bangladesh. The plant is situated in Mongla Port Industrial Area on the bank of the Pashur River. It has its own jetty facilities and LPG sourcing is solely import oriented. Storage facilities consist of six spherical tanks each of 500 metric tons capacity (total 3000 metric tons capacity) and have a carousal system with 24filling posts. The plant can fill 800 to 1000 cylinders an hour. The company is marketing their product in the brand name of ‘Bashundhara LP Gas’. The cylinders are partly red and green. The company started its commercial operation in the year 1999 and availed the vast opportunities of market scarcity as the BPC gas was not able to fulfill the huge demand gap. Bashundhara Group has very wide and established channels of distribution and Bashundhara LP Gas utilized these opportunities for LP Gas marketing. It has now 12 transportation trucks for distribution of LPG cylinder and enjoys a very good grip over distributors. Higher capacity (3000 metric tons) of storage facility provides an advantage in import of LP Gas as ocean going LP Gas tankers can easily berth at its own jetty.
