Excelerate Energy Bangladesh Ltd has announced that it has distributed over 1500 schoolbags and supplies to the students of Ghotibhanga Government Primary school located in the main fishermen's village of Ghotibhanga in Moheshkhali, Bangladesh.

In 2018, the company commenced operations in the Moheshkhali region with its Moheshkhali floating LNG (MLNG) project – Bangladesh’s first LNG import facility. In addition to this, the company also began operations at the Summit LNG terminal, owned by Summit LNG Terminal Co Ltd, in April. To date, Excelerate has successfully imported more than 50 cargoes of LNG, and delivered over 150 million Btu of natural gas into the Bangladeshi market, representing a more than 20% increase in gas supply during this period.

The children ranged from Grades 1 to 8. This initiative is part of Excelerate’s ongoing community engagement and aimed to promote education and to encourage local students to attend school regularly. Along with Excelerate representatives, local officials, school administration, and parents also took part in the program.

Excelerate's Managing Director Steven Kobos said: “A child can only succeed if they have the proper tools to do so.

“We are honoured to support the communities in which we serve – especially when it comes to championing education and helping underserved students thrive in school. They, after all, represent the future of any community.”

In August, Excelerate claims it distributed more than 400 bags to the children of Dhalghatpara Primary School, also located in Moheshkhali.

Excelerate’s HSSE manager, Adeeb Quader, who helped present the school supplies, said: “It was a real pleasure to see the excitement and happiness of all the kids after receiving the gifts.

“We value our partnership with the community and local fishermen, and we look forward to more opportunities to support the families of this region.”
