Moheshkhali-Anowara Gas Pipeline is an operating natural gas pipeline in Bangladesh.
The pipeline runs from Moheskhali Upazila to Anowara, Bangladesh.

The Moheshkhali-Anowara gas pipeline is operated by GTCL, a subsidiary of Petrobangla. The pipeline transports imported liquefied natural gas which has been re-gasified at the Floating Storage & Re-gasification Unit (FSRU) just offshore Moheshkhali to supply gas to the Chittagong Ring Main gas pipeline. Upon meeting the Chittagong demand, any surplus gas is then supplied to the transmission pipeline upstream of Chittagong.
The pipeline was implemented in July 2014 and was commissioned in June 2017.
The Maheshkhali-Anowara Gas Transmission parallel Pipeline project reportedly was expected to begin operation in June 2019, however as of February 2020 the project is still listed as an ongoing and future development plan.
