The Atuabo Gas Processing Plant and its allied gas infrastructure will, therefore be temporarily shutdown during the maintenance period, halting power supply for the entire period.
In a statement released by the Atuabo plant, the planned maintenance which will be the third since lean gas and associated liquid production began at the plant is expected to last approximately ten calendar days, given that the plant has been operational for 12,000 hours since its commissioning in 2014.
The move will also facilitate warranty assurance on the installed equipment and the validity of the plant’s insurance cover.
Ghana Gas has also revealed that it is in contact with the Volta River Authority, the primary downstream lean gas off-taker and the other product off-takers as well as the upstream gas supplier, Tullow Ghana Limited to ensure smooth implementation and completion of the planned maintenance works.
The company will also update appropriate stakeholders on the progress of work.
