First understand the context before jumping into an argument, just picking up a line and start on blabbering would only show your stupidity and lack of comprehension ability.
We are one of only few emerging economies that has a shortfall of refined oil capacity. There is simply no debate to the need for expanding the oil refining capacity.
Being a petroleum exporting country is not the target now, rather it will be just a bonus. Achieving self-sufficiency is the main issue here.
Land acquisition shouldn't be any problem. Kuwait was allotted a 1000 acre land for that project. All the deep sea port projects in Bangladesh have a dedicated area for oil refining facilities i.e. Payra, Matarbari, Sonadia.
Iajdani said: "Bangladesh could use Indian capacity as we are not the producer of crude anyways"
and you replied:
"Even India is not a producer of crude oil."
Could have just admitted your error and moved on instead of this "understand the context blah blah blah".
India is definitely a crude oil producer. If what we consider to be a small fraction of our needs is several times Bangladeshi total demand....it still does not change we produce a significant quantity....nor does it change why I should correct your statement. India and Bangladesh relative situations are also different...Bangladesh does not produce one drop of crude oil....India has produced as high as 40% of its local needs in the past.
Now you can say India is not a major crude oil producer or a crude oil exporter....and everything is A-OK. Instead you got caught out and now have to resort to claim someone correcting you is being stupid and has lack of comprehension. Funny.
Anyways I agree with the rest of your post. Do you have any maps of the deep water ports you mention and how much area has been assigned to oil refineries? Self sufficiency sounds like a worthwhile objective if the resources and investment are available and the long term economics make sense.
