Ghanaian Times, Ghana Gas to partner to educate public on country’s gas-based resources
The Ghanaian Times and the Ghana National Gas Company Limited (GNGCL) are to collaborate and educate the public on the natural gas and gas-based resources of the country.
They would roll out a series of publications to keep Ghanaians abreast of the work being done by the mid-stream gas business company and the contribution of the sector in power generation.
This came to light yesterday when GNGCL’s Communication Officers; Harry Aboagye, Tinkaro Asare Osei, and Romeo Oduro paid a courtesy call on the Ghanaian Times Editor, David Agbenu, and his deputy Salifu Abdul-Rahaman.
Mr Aboagye explained that the visit was to deepen the company’s corporate relations with the Ghanaian Times which had been an important media partner over the years.
He said the company valued its relationship with its key partners and would therefore seize any opportunity to draw closer to them, and join forces to showcase the activities of Ghana Gas.
In view of this, he proposed monthly publications on the company’s mandate of operating infrastructure required for the gathering, processing, transporting, and marketing of natural gas resources in Ghana and abroad.
Aside from this collaboration, Mr Aboagye expressed the hope that the two-state institutions would explore other areas of cooperation and execute projects for mutual benefit.
Welcoming the delegation, Mr Agbenu said such visits were good as they helped connect the company to the media whose core mandate is to disseminate information.
He welcomed Mr Aboagye’s proposal for monthly publications and stated the Ghanaian Times’ readiness to churn out accurate information to educate its readers.
“Ghana Gas is a major player in the power sector so the company’s input is important. Some will prefer to close their doors but our doors are always open for collaboration,” he said.
Incorporated in July 2011, the GNGC started official production in November 2014. It is responsible for producing and prospecting lean gas, condensate, and liquefied petroleum gas. It also helps to accelerate the nation’s industrial sector.
