(Reuters) The head of state-run Saudi Aramco denied it was considering construction of an oil refinery in Bangladesh after a senior Dhaka energy official said on Monday the proposal had been raised last week.  "This is not true. There is no discussion at all about refineries in Bangladesh," Khalid al-Falih, Aramco's chief executive officier, told reporters in Riyadh.  Earlier the Bangladesh energy official had said the proposal to build the refinery at an estimated cost of $2.5 billion was made when a  Saudi Aramco delegation visited Dhaka last week and met officials at the ministry of power and energy.
