The Chief Executive Officer of Ghana Gas, George Sipa Yankey disclosed this to the press after an interaction with engineers and staff of the company after completion of maintenance works on the plant.

Per current arrangement, Ghana Gas would have to shutdown its gas processing plants after every 4000 hours of operation for maintainance.

The gas processing plant at Atuabo was shutdown in September for its third maintenance schedule after 4000 hours of operations.

The new overhead compressor will ensure that the plant continuous to pump gas even during routine maintenance.

The compressor, Dr Yankey said, will be installed in the coming months.

"This mandatory shutdown of every 4000 hours is going to be the last one... as you see shortly we have in place the equipment, the components for a second overhead compressor. When that is installed, anytime that one [compressor] does 4000 hours then other will be brought into service while maintenance goes on," he said of the new compressor.

"So this five days, one week, 10 days periodic measure  shutdown will be a thing of the past," he added.
