Ghana: Gas set to flow, but questions remain
The official launch of the $850m Western Corridor Gas Infrastructure Development Project is now scheduled for October, once the overhaul of the Aboadze thermal plant is complete. The state Ghana National Gas Company (GNGC) is overseeing development and implementation of the three main aspects of the project: a processing plant in Atuabo, an offshore pipeline from the Jubilee field to Atuabo, and an onshore pipeline to transport processed gas from Atuabo to Aboadze. According to GNGC officials, the infrastructure is virtually complete. An official told African Energy that repairs to a 14km free span, where the gas pipeline is not fully supported on the sea bed because of an uneven surface, were completed on 18 July after several weeks of non-stop work.
