Chevron Bangladesh as part of its annual social investment efforts has recently provided materials such as hand-pumps, pipes, and filters etc. for 80 deep and shallow tube-wells for the supply of safe drinking water to people near its operational area.
The move potentially covered around 550 families in multiple Unions residing near Bibiyana, Bangladesh's largest producing gas field, according to a press release.
Chevron Bangladesh has also recently provided significant infrastructural support by delivering bricks and river sand for the refurbishment of 1,230 meters of five village mud roads, enhancing road connectivity for up to 8,000 people living in three unions located near the Bibiyana Gas Field.
Also, near Bibiyana, the company has renovated an 'Eidgah' enabling approximately 1,000 people to perform their prayers during the two Eid festivals of the year. It has also provided construction materials for the renovation of a village mosque.
To help the less fortunate population cope with the winter, Chevron Bangladesh has distributed 4,000 blankets amongst underprivileged communities of eight Unions in Bibiyana, Moulavi Bazar Gas Plants, and Muchai Compressor Station.
Chevron Corporation is one of the world's leading integrated energy companies and operates and holds a 100% interest in two onshore PSCs in Bangladesh covering Block 12 (Bibiyana Field) and Blocks 13 and 14 (Jalalabad and Moulavi Bazar fields).
