Officials at the Ghana Gas Company and the Ministry of Petroleum are confident that commercial gas production at the Atuabo Gas Plant may begin on April 1. This implies that consumers of electricity might see some improvement in power supply in the coming days.

Petroleum Minister Emmanuel Armah Kofi Buah and the Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Gas Company made this known when they appeared before the Assurance Committee of Parliament.

Kofi Buah said Ghana Gas had not yet gone into commercial operation because the “plants have not been ready to take the full volumes of the gas” as indicated.

He stated that “government is hoping to get VRA to have a sustainable intake over 90 million then at that point, they can work with the EPA to be able to push to get to the maximum capacity of 150 for about 72 hours”

The CEO of Ghana Gas Company, Dr George Sipa Yankey added that about $1 billion has been spent on the project.

According to him, the Ghana government contributed 15 percent of the cost with the rest coming from a Chinese Development Bank loan
