Tema, Oct 23, GNA – The Tema Oil Refinery
(TOR) is expected to complete the discharging of about 950,000 barrels of crude
oil on Tuesday as it prepares its boilers for refining fuel after several
months of shut down.

A source at the Refinery told the Ghana News
Agency that the discharging of the crude oil started on Sunday and was expected
to be completed on Tuesday.

According to him, TOR was yet to start proper
work as after discharging, they would have to drain water from the crude oil
which could take some time.

This will be followed by the taking of level
and  quantity analysis of the crude
received to ascertain if it tallies with what was expected before refining
start from next week.

The crude oil is said to have arrived in Ghana
on board the MT British Heritage on Friday.

Some workers of the Refinery, some few weeks
ago, expressed fear of a possible shut down of the Refinery for good and job
losses due to the intermittent idleness of the plant even after routine
maintenance.
