Atuabo Gas back on stream after maintenance

The Atuabo Gas Processing Plant is operating on full capacity now after shutting down for maintenance, owner Ghana National Gas Company announced.

According to a statement from Ghana Gas, the plant resumed processing, production and supply of various gas products on Thursday, April 30, 2015 following re-introduction of raw natural gas from the Jubilee Field’s FPSO Kwame Nkrumah to the plant.

Subsequent supply to the downstream off-takers began the same day.

The plant was shut down April 20 for ‘warranty assurance and viability of operating insurance.’

The statement said: ‘Ghana Gas is collaborating with the Volta River Authority to manage the transition to full production within the coming days as the VRA progressively increases its offtake of processed lean gas for power production in the Aboadze Thermal Power enclave.

‘The Board and Management of Ghana Gas commend its plant engineers and other stakeholders for their diligence and commitment to duty in completing the works ahead of schedule.’
