Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo) has announced that power supply to Ghanaian consumers will be affected for a few days following the vandalism of some pipelines of the West African Gas Pipeline Company (WAPCo) in Nigeria.

A statement signed by the Chief Executive of the Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo), Mr. William Amuna said gas flow from the WAPCo pipeline has reduced to only 6mscf from the contracted volume of 120mscf.

According to the statement, “engineers have commenced the process of converting all dual fuel thermal plants to run on Light Crude Oil to mitigate the challenge emanating from the setback.”

“The conversion process which involves cleaning of fuel Nozzles and other preparatory works, according to GRIDCo could take a couple of days to complete.”

“During this period, the transmission system may experience some challenges thereby affecting power supply stability,” the statement added.

FPSO Nkrumah shut down

Meanwhile, the Floating Production Storage and Offloading Vessel (FPSO Kwame Nkrumah) has been shut-down by the operators of the facility for mandatory inspection and maintenance.

The shut-down is expected to last for about two weeks.

The gas flow from the Atuabo Gas Processing plant to the Aboadze thermal enclave has therefore, been curtailed until the resumption of production from the FPSO.
