This CD-ROM was compiled as part of the Bangladesh gas resources assessment conducted under the Participating Agency Service Agreement (PASA), signed between U.S. Agency of International Development (USAID) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) - PASA No: 388-P-00-99-00026. The PASA provides for assistance to the natural gas sector pursuant to which the resources assessment was jointly carried out. The PASA also allows for transfer of new technology, modeling practices and geoscience theory from existing and established programs in the United States to the Government of Bangladesh, Petrobangla and Bangladesh academia.
The following people, with their responsibilities, were involved in producing this CD-ROM:

This CD-ROM was compiled according to the methodology developed by the U.S. Geological Survey's World Energy Project . The goal of the project was to assess the undiscovered, technically recoverable oil and gas resources of the world and report these results by the year 2000. A worldwide series of geologic maps, published on CD-ROMs, was released by the U.S. Geological Survey's World Energy Project during 1997 - 2000.
Specific details of the data sources and map compilation are given in the metadata files on this CD-ROM.
These maps were compiled using Environmental Systems Research Institute Inc. (ESRI) ARC/INFO software. Political boundaries and cartographic representations on this map are with permission from ESRI's ArcWorld 1:3M digital coverage: they have no political significance and are displayed as general reference only.
