N-Gas has shut down gas supply to Ghana due to the indebtedness of over $100 million, Deputy Minister of Power, John Jinapor has said.
He was reacting to media report that said the supply was disconnected last Friday, June 17, 2016 over failure to meet full payment of the debt as required by N-Gas.
Jinapor explained on Peace FM Tuesday that officials of Volta River Authority held a meeting with the West African Gas Pipeline Company (WAPCo) and agreed to pay $46 million of the debt.
He added that so far, $10 million has been paid and measures are in place to pay the remaining $36 million.
“In all honesty, the gas supply is very low,” Jinapor added.
Jinapor also added that gas supply will be low for the next three weeks.
N-Gas is VRA’s main supplier of gas through WAPCo, and any shut down of gas supply will affect the Sunon Asogli Power Plant which uses only gas.
