The National Gas Company has begun assessing potential levels of threat to the gas plant after series of terror attacks on neighbouring counties, Burkina Faso and Ivory coast.

The company has met with some key security heads in the country to map a strategy to protect the gas plant and its pipelines.

Speaking to Pulse Business, Head of Public Relations at the Ghana Gas Company, Alfred Ogbamey revealed "that the company has had a meeting with the  Ghana Armed Forces, Ghana Police and the Ghana Fire Service on the best way to protect the  Gas Company that is so integral to energy provision in the country."

The meeting also discussed plans to enhance co-ordination and sharing of security information and strategies among the various security institutions within the eight project-affected districts of the gas project.

“We, at Ghana Gas, believe this will enhance ownership of the shared security concerns by all, including the security agencies, staff and the project-affected communities and improve the fight against threats such as terrorism and galamsey to the onshore pipeline,” Dr George Sipa Yankey, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Ghana Gas, noted at the meeting.

According to Dr Yankey, security is a shared responsibility, and, therefore, ordered for an immediate community engagement strategy aimed at heightening surveillance of the gas infrastructure.

“I, therefore, direct that we further strengthen our engagements with our host communities. Let us encourage them to recognise their shared dividends in the gas infrastructure,” he said.
