1.1 Introduction

The growing role of energy sector in facitating and expeding economic,social

developmentbis now being recognized by most of developing countries.Energy is therefore
incorporates an important part of the growing business activity.This study content
includesthe overall activities of the company and use of those activities in gas sector. With
Socio-economic development of the country demand for energy is rising very fast.
Government is highly aware and active for increase of energy supply which is indispensible
for continuation of country's progress. Over the last five years, Government has
accomplished various infrastructure development and technical building in the energy sector
that is gas and coal sector. Exploration and production activities are primarily carried out by
the Petrobangla.Petrobangla (Bangladesh Oil,Gas & Mineral Corporation) is a goverment-
owned national oil company of Bangladesh.Petrobangla was founded in 1985 by merging
two goverment organization,Bangladesh Oil & Gas Corporation(BOGC) and Bangladesh
Mineral Development Corporation(BMEDC).Petrobangla explores,produces,transports and
sells oil,natural gas and other mineral resources.It also concludes production sharing
agreements with international oil companies for exploration and development of oil and gas
resources in Bangladesh. Petrobangla is responsible for overall corporate planning for the
gas sector. The relevant specific companies implement most of the investment plans but the
final decision and approval authority lies with Petrobangla. The national economic strategy
and the role of energy sector embedded in it guide the corporate planning of Petrobangla.
Petrobangla has formulated a plan that includes the whole range of activity from exploration
to marketing, taking in to cognizance both the public sector and private sector operators.
Petrobangla markets gas to various customers through its marketing companies. There are
now five marketing companies operating in their respective franchise areas. The companies
are Titas Gas T & D Company Ltd., Bakhrabad Gas System Ltd., Jalalabad Gas T & D
System Ltd., Pashchimanchal Gas Co. Ltd., Karnafuli Gas Distribution Co. Ltd. Over the
last five years gas production has been increased by 895 million cubic feet daily by
drilling/work over/production increased from 44 wells. Natural Gas is the most important
source of energy in our country as it accounts for about 80% of the total commercial energy
of the country. At present, about 37% of natural gas production is used as fuel for electricity
generation. Overdependence on the natural gas must be reduced as the present reserve is not
sufficient enough to support the country for long term economic growth. Overall, in long
term, an intelligent mix of the different available energy sources can enable Bangladesh to
ensure a sustainable economic growth of the country. Right conditions and framework at
policy and regulatory level is a must.

Knowledge Gained During BBA Program
I am a student of Bachelor of Business Administration(BBA).This program contains 12
semesters including internship.1st to 11th semester deal with educational activities, and 12th
semester requires internship.
As a student of BBA program,I gained a variety of knowledge through the class lectures,text
book,assignment,presentation,class test,quiz,viva,exams etc. While concluding my internship
in JGTDSL,some of this knowledge was very helpful which Iapplied in my internship.
During my internship,I found this knowledge very essential for practical professional life.

5.1 Principles of Finance

As a student of Finance,I can see lots of things how these courses applied in company.

Finance is a study, that describes how to collect funds at minimum cost and utilization of
those funds at maximum return.The key point of finance is the time value of money,which
refers to A Currency Today Is Worth More Than A Currency Tomorrow. Finance related
courses basically helped me by the following ways-

 In JGTDSL,all ratios like current ratio,quick ratio,receivable turnover,profit

margin,Earnings Per Share(EPS) etc. I learnd from Finance related courses.So it was
easy to understand,how these courses are applied in JGTDSL.
 In Finance course,I learned about deposites, loans, accounts etc.
 When I joined the JGTDSL,I wrote many cheques,bills.I learned how to write
different cheques like bearer cheque, crossed cheque etc.

5.2 Principles of Accounting

In the Accounting courses,I broadly understand the accounting system and procedures of my
organization.The Accounting is essential to business,and has been called the ‘Language of
Business’ because it is the means by which business communicates their activities to
investors,creditors and other stakeholders.

Accounting that provides information to people outside the business entity is called Financial

Cost Accounting is the process of collecting,analyzing,summarizing and evaluation various

alternative courses of action.

Management Accounting is concerned primaryly with providing a basis for making

management or operating decisions.
 In my Company,all the transactions are maintained by double entry system,which I
learned broadly in my accounting related courses.So it was very easy to
understand,what side should be debit and what side should be credit,when a
transaction is occurred.
 I have learned different types of statements in my Accounting courses,those
knowledges gave me an advantage in making the Journal,Ledger,Trial Balance and
Balance Sheet of JGTDSL.
 Bank reconcile is an important segment in any organization,The intermediate
Accounting course helped my to understand the Bank Reconcilation of different
sections of JGTDSL.

5.3 Principles of Marketing

In the BBA program, I have completed two courses of marketing named ‘Principles of
Marketing’ and ‘Marketing Management’.These two courses teach me how to behave with
clients/consumers that I performed my internship.Marketing courses basically helped me by
the following sectors-

 In marketing courses,I broadly learned that every business or organization has some
products or services.So when I joined JGTDSL,it was very easy to me to find out
what kind of services are available in JGTDSL.
 I learned about different types of customers in my academic courses.As JGTDSL is a
different types of organization, its customer category is also different.

Theoretical knowledge is only the bookish knowledge and practical knowledge is the
implementation of that theoretical knowledge in the working place.

internship for three months,though I felt difficulty at first but after a few days,I realized that
practical knowledge is easier than the theoretical knowledge.Practically,I could complete
almost all the task easily.
