However, a team led by the Minister of Energy and Petroleum, Mr Emmanuel Armah-Kofi Buah, which visited Nigeria on Monday, March 17, 2014 secured a commitment from the Nigerian authorities for the constant supply of 50MMBtu/d, up from the 30MMBtu/d or less being supplied in recent days.

Unfortunately, plants at the Aboadze Power Enclave, which were inaugurated to run on light crude and gas at the same time, with a capacity of 630MW, were saddled with major problems which forced the country into the current load-management exercise, Eng Badger said. Asogli Plant in Tema

During the tour of the Sunon Asogli Power Plant, officials there said their main problem was the erratic gas supply from Nigeria which resulted in a complete shutdown of the plant.

 The Managing Director of the company, Mr Kweku Lee, however, indicated that after President John Dramani Mahama had dispatched the Energy Minister to hold discussions with the Nigerian authorities, the supply of gas had improved significantly.

Mr Lee expressed the hope that the gas volumes would improve if the Atuabo Gas Plant became operational. Atuabo

At the Ghana Gas project site, engineers of the Ghana National Gas Company (Ghana Gas) took journalists through the processes and gave an assurance that in the worst-case scenario, the mechanical completion would be done by April 20, 2014. 

“We are working extra hours to ensure that the initial deadline of March 31, 2014 is attained, followed by testing and the inauguration of the project,” they said.

Mr Robert Lartey, the Engineering Manager for the project, said on April 6 a vessel would arrive to connect its offshore riser-platform to the FPSO Kwame Nkrumah to commence the shipment of the raw gas to the shore for processing.

“In June, we will start the transmission of about 100 million standard cubic feet (SCF) to Aboadze where the tie-in to the VRA facility has already been completed,” he said. 

Another major boost, according to him, was the arrival of the Gamma Ray Scanner for the completion of the liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) facility for domestic use.

“The facility will be ready on schedule to start processing more than 1.3 trillion cubic feet of associated gas which is much needed to fire the power plants and pave the way for the Jubilee partners to increase production,” he said. Energy minister

For his part, the Minister of Energy and Petroleum, Mr Emmanuel Armah-Kofi Buah, described the situation as a short-term challenge which would be over soon.

He commended the engineers on site for their dedication and urged them not to let the nation down. 

“The country will emerge from the current situation stronger,” he added.

He also indicated that the government had various plans in place which would position the country as a net exporter of power. Expected gas offshore

After the first round of aggressive exploration, appraisals of the country’s first oil and gas fields show that an estimated volume of more than five trillion cubic feet of gas deposit is yet to be harnessed.

The Atuabo facility will, from next June, start receiving part of the associated gas from the Jubilee Fields, with the capacity to process 120 million SCF daily.

The country’s daily requirement of gas to operate all the units commissioned to run on gas at the moment is estimated at about 270 million SCF.
