The supply cut over the weekend had led to the loss of 230 megawatts (MW) of power.

 

"As of Wednesday morning, the FPSO was providing us with 43.6 million standard cubic feet and we were supplying the VRA with 42.8 million standard cubic feet. As at Wednesday evening, that had increased to 57.1 million standard cubic feet and we are supplying VRA with 55.5 million standard cubic feet, so there is an improvement,” Ogbamey told Citi FM.

The supply cut over the weekend had led to the loss of 230 megawatts (MW) of power.

Ogbamey told OKAY FM on Monday that power generation will be affected by the latest development because some of the turbines will be dormant due to inadequate gas supply.

"There are some plants at Aboadze that runs only on gas, Ogbamey told OKAY FM. "For example all the AMERI plants or turbines run on gas."

He added that "there are some plants that also run on gas and light crude oil."

"The gas available cannot feed all the plants. Therefore some turbines will remain dormant till there is increase in supply," he added.
