National Energy Balance of Bangladesh for FY 2021-22 (preliminary) [Explanatory Notes]

  • Coal calorific value: Imported = 20.9 GJ/tonne (net, UNSD 2014), domestic = 25.68 MJ/kg (gross, BCMCL. Converted to NCV = GCV x 95%)
  • Coal supply except for power generation, non-energy consumption, and own consumption is assumed to be entirely allocated to brick manufacturing.
  • Coal stock change is the figure reported as sedimented coal stock change by BCMCL, not balancing with the residue between production and consumption. It is not considered in this FY’s table.
  • Coal import: HCU data is used, not BBS data (BBS data is not yet obtained). HCU data is assumed to include BCPCL coal import data for Payra Power Plant which is being reported from FY 2019-10. Import other than Payra Power Plant use is entirely allocated to brick manufacturing.
  • Coal consumption for power generation: BCMCL sales data is used (which does not match BPDB consumption data)
  • Coal sales by BCMCL to industry (use by XMC-CMC Consortium) is not yet obtained.
  • Natural gas calorific value: 0.931 ktoe/mmcm (Petrobangla gas field weighted average (gross). Converted to NCV = GCG x 90%)
  • Natural gas field consumption data is unavailable, and is assumed to be zero.
  • Natural gas sub-sector consumption (gray italic) are assumed to include autoproducer gas consumption therefore not reflected in the national energy balance calculation
  • Crude oil calorific value: 42.3 GJ/ton (net, UNSD 2014).
  • Crude oil figures include both Murban and Arabian Light Crude, obtained from HCU (BBS statistics is not yet available).
  • NGL production figures are not yet available, therefore preliminary assumption is used.
  • Condensate production is omitted (=nil) due to lack of data.
  • NGL and condensate calorific value is not available, therefore, assumed to be the same as that of LPG at 47.3 GJ/ton (net, UNSD 2014).
  • Fractionation input is not yet obtained.
  • Fractionation output is not yet obtained.
  • Refinery output is the sum of LPG, naphta, MS, HOBC, SKO, HSD, LDO and FO production data reported by ERL.
  • Petroleum products calorific value is the weighted average (by sales quantity of major products reported by BPC) of UNSD net calorific value, at 0.96 toe/ton.
  • Petroleum products import is the sum of refined oil (reported to include Jet A-1, SKO, MS, and HSD), furnace oil, and private LPG imports on BBS statistics.
  • Petroleum products export is reported to be zero for this fiscal year.
  • Maritime & aviation bunker data is not available, and deemed to be nil.
  • Petroleum products input to power generation is the sales to grid power generation reported by BPC.
  • Private import of LPG is assumed to be entirely allocated to residential sector
  • Petroleum products industry sector consumption is the sales to industry sector reported by BPC minus JBO, SPBS, and MTT sales statiscs by BBS.
  • Petroleum products transport sector consumption is the sales to transport sector reported by BPC, minus entire bitumen sales and entire lubricants sales statistics by BBS.
  • Petroleum products residential sector consumption is the sum of sales to the sector reported by BPC, plus entire private LPG import (privately imported LPG which may be consumed for road transport and commercial usage could not be separated, therefore included in residential sector consumption)
  • Petroleum products commercial & public services consumption is the sales to building (others) sector reported by BPC. Privately imported LPG consumed in commercial & public services is not included as it could not be separated from residential sector sales.
  • Petroleum products agriculture sector consumption is the diesel sales to agricultural sector reported by BPC.
  • Petroleum products non-energy consumption is the sum of JBO, bitumen, SBPS, MTT and Lube oil sales on BBS statistics.
  • Biofuel data for the fiscal year is not available, therefore the median of previous and succeeding fiscal years is used.
  • Gross and net power generation data are respectively available only for hydro and public thermal power generations. For generation from other sources, station usage is deemed to be nil.
  • Electricity consumption in commercial & public services sector is the sum of commercial and others sectors consumption.
