Ghana Gas Company (GGC) will from next year, 2020, execute more projects to spur the next stage of its development.
The Head of Communications of GGC, Mr Ernest Owusu-Bempah, said so far, the company’s karpowership project had produced 470 million megawatts of power for electricity generation, which was significant and beneficial to the country’s gas value chain.
Mr Owusu-Bempah indicated that the Sanzule enclave tie-in would add another 350 million cubic feet of gas with the reverse flow also supplying another 60 million cubic feet of gas to the Eastern Corridor as a standby in the event that f Asogli plant and others could not get supply from the West African Power Project.
He was speaking at a press soiree organised by the GGC here on Saturday, for journalists, and also unveil plans of Ghana Gas for the future.
Mr Owusu-Bempah said Ghana Gas would contribute to national development and provide the foundation for a modern industry.
He said Ghana Gas had won six awards with, “Our CEO winning the best in petroleum and oil and gas as well as one of the best company among best three companies”.
Mr Owusu- Bempah said, “Going forward, the sky is always the limit, and I think we need your supports so that we have a good institution for all of us”.
He asked journalists to be circumspect about their reportage on the Karpowership project, and always report the facts while seeking the other side of the stories.
Mr Owusu-Bempah said the company had taken the necessary steps to ensure that standards were strictly adhered in executing the KARPOWER project.
“Ghana Gas is one of the few companies in the world that adheres to safety protocols. We are in collaboration with other companies across the world that adopts good standards. We cannot do this project without the required safety protocols in the oil and gas industry. We need to take a critical look at that. Our doors are always open,” he added.
Mr Owusu-Bempah said, “Ghana Gas has done so well, and we are looking forward to do more to satisfy the nation and help build the country. But, we cannot do this without adhering to safety standards. We are professionals in what we do.”
