Halted Ghana Gas shuts down over Tullow gas supply disruption

George Yankey told Reuters that Tullow had informed the plant of the disruption on its floating production vessel.

  • Published: , Refreshed:

The Ghana Gas Company has shut down its Atuabo gas processing plant due to an unexpected disruption of gas supply from the offshore Jubilee field operated by Tullow Oil, the plant's director said on Tuesday.

George Yankey told Reuters that Tullow had informed the plant of the disruption on its floating production vessel. Gas supplies were cut on July 3 and there was no indication when they would resume, he said.

"Our plant and other systems are in good health but we've had to shut down due to an unplanned disruption in supplies from the FPSO (floating, production, storage and offloading vessel)," Yankey said.

Tullow did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The Chinese-built, $750 million Atuabo gas facility in western Ghana processes around 100 million standard cubic feet of gas daily to feed nearby thermal power generators run by the country's main power utility.

The plant's construction was a crucial part of a government strategy to ease a chronic energy shortage that has contributed to a slowing of the economy.
