With the completion of Hobigonj Tea Valley Project, a Program on Sylhet Town Gas Supply Project was initiated by Petrobangla. On merging of the said two projects in 1977, formal gas distribution on Sylhet town was started in 1978. With the implementation of Sylhet Tea Estate Gas Supply Project-1, Sunamgonj Town Gas Supply Project, Kailashtilla-Chhatak Pipeline Project and Chhatak Town Gas Supply Project, the Gas Supply network recorded a significant expansion in the region.
To meet the growing demand, Jalalabad Gas Transmission and Distribution System Limited was formed on December 1, 1986 under the company Act with an authorized capital of Tk.150 crores. The objective was to help developing the socio-economic condition of the people of Sylhet region.
The Company has been playing an important role since its inception in reducing dependency on imported fuel, saving of foreign currency and maintenance of ecological balance through construction of pipeline, installation and maintenance of related facilities to ensure uninterrupted transmission and distribution of gas throughout the franchise area.
