Block-Lease Negotiation and feasibility measurement takes time.what's taking them so long (to extract) ?
it's almost 3 years since they did the survey.
To begin extraction is a relatively short process but companies (like BP and EXXON) have to make absolutely sure that it makes financial sense for them after sinking bore holes, renting derricks, laying pipelines, paying off these govt. idiots (goes all the way to the top) that they can extract the gas and sell it to make a profit.
We also cannot count out the influence of the competition of imported LNG from Kuwait, thanks to Summit Group, whose directors are all Hasina friends.
If imported LNG is cheaper, then extraction is moot.
