The Ghana National Gas Company says power supply to the national grid will not be affected as a result of cut in gas supply to the facility.
Tullow Oil cut supply of gas by almost 50 per cent due to remedial works upstream on the FPSO.
According to the Ghana National Gas Company, the situation is expected to last between 1st November and 21st November.
Head of Corporate Communications at Ghana Gas, Alfred Ogbamey says the cut in supply even though will affect revenue for the country, it will not have any significant impact on supply of power.
He said “We are reducing it from 90 million standard cubic feet per day to 50”.
He explained, “that means a reduction in availability of gas for processing. It will mean reductions in subsequent gas supply to the VRA and an increase in the cost of production or the cost of generating from Atuabo.
“But let me say that it will not have any impact on the current energy situation.”
The Ghana National Gas Company Limited in August 2016 announced a shutdown of the Atuabo gas plant to allow for a planned maintenance work.
