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."
“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.
