Atuabo Gas Plant shuts down tomorrow

Dr George Sipa-YankeyThe Atuabo Gas Processing Plant of the Ghana Gas Company (Ghana Gas), will from tomorrow be temporarily shut down for mandatory maintenance works to be carried on the installation.

The planned shutdown and maintenance work on the plant which will last 10 days would be the third since lean gas and associated liquid production began in 2014.

Since its inauguration the plant had been in operation for more than 12,000 hours.

A press statement signed by the Corporate Communications Manager at Ghana Gas, Alfred Ogbamey, said “this mandatory outage is required by original equipment manufacturers and vendors for maintenance of certain critical components in the gas processing plant on periodic basis.

“It is also to facilitate warranty assurance on the installed equipment and the validity of our operating insurance cover.”

Ghana Gas, the statement said, was in communication with the Volta River Authority, the primary downstream lean gas off-taker and other product off-takers, as well as the upstream gas supplier, Tullow Ghana Limited, to ensure a smooth implementation and completion of the planned maintenance works.

Appropriate stakeholders, the statement added, would be updated on the progress of work.
