Training program on Remote Sensing Technology and Interpretation 16–23 January 2017

This eight (8) days professional development program is prepared in response to recent request from BAPEX for a professional training program on “Remote Sensing Technology and Interpretation


The course will provide an overview of remote sensing technology. The participants are expected to enhance their knowledge and understanding on the use of remote sensing technology for oil and gas industries.

Bangladesh Petroleum Exploration and Production Company Limited (BAPEX)

Bangladesh Petroleum Exploration and Production Company Limited (BAPEX) was established in 1989 as the national exploration company by abolishing the Exploration Directorate of Petrobangla with a view to accelerating oil and gas exploration activities of the country. BAPEX was transformed into an exploration and production company in 2000 with a view to making it self-reliant. Currently BAPEX is producing about 120 mmcf gas daily from its six onshore gas fields (Saldanadi, Fenchuganj, Shahbazpur, Semutang, Shahjadpur-Sundalpur and Srikail) contributing to mitigate the increasing gas demand of the country. Besides, exploration and drilling activities in its awarded areas, BAPEX has also been conducting drilling and work-over operations to other sister concerns of Petrobangla since its beginning. BAPEX was awarded exploration block 8 & 11 along with some ring-fenced structures. Oil and gas exploration and development activities are being conducted periodically in these areas.
