Omera Gas One Ltd, a subsidiary of East Coast Group, has signed separate deals with Meghna, Jamuna and Padma oil companies to set up auto gas stations and supply liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) across the country, aiming to ease people's sufferings in converting their vehicles into LPG-efficient ones.
With the signing of the agreements, Omera Gas One Ltd will not only supply LPG to the stations of the three companies but will also convert vehicles into LPG-driven ones, said a press release on Sunday.
Tanveer Azam Chowdhury, chief executive officer of Omera Gas One Ltd, officially unveiled details of the agreement signing with Meghna Petroleum Ltd (MPL), Jamuna Oil Company Ltd (JOCL) and Padma Oil Company Ltd (POCL) at the East Coast Group headquarters in the city.
Tanveer Azam said they separately signed the agreements with Meghna and Jamuna on Thursday while the deal with Padma was signed on Saturday.
Meghna's Managing Director Mir Saifullah-Al-Khaled, Jamuna's Managing Director Md Gias Uddin Ansary and Padma's Managing Director Md Masudur Rahman signed the deals on behalf of their companies.
About the signing of the deals, Tanveer said joining hands with the three giants means more LPG access to refueling stations and more availability of auto gas for consumers across the country.
"A lot of consumers hesitate to convert to LPG only doubting the availability of the fuel. Therefore, Omera Gas One is determined to remove this hesitation altogether by making auto gas available all over the country," he said in a statement.
"These auto gas stations will not only provide uninterrupted LPG for vehicles 24/7 but will also provide LPG conversion services," he added.
Last week, Beximco, Bashundhara and Energypac also inked separate agreements with these oil companies for the same purpose. The three companies will set up 1,000 auto gas filling station across the country.
