The West African Gas Pipeline Company Limited (WAPCo) has resumed gas supply to Tema following the completion of valve replacement works at the Takoradi Regulating and Metering Station.
The company last Thursday shut down its Takoradi facility to allow for the replacement of some critical valves at the facility aimed at securing the safety and integrity of the Takoradi station.
The exercise was projected to last for 10 days, but a release signed by Manager, Corporate Affairs, Dr Issac Adjei Doku, and copied to the Ghanaian Times stated that it was completed ahead of time.
It said the WAPCo project team worked collaboratively with contractors and stakeholders to ensure that the shutdown activities were safely and seamlessly executed.
The early completion of the works, the release stated, was an outcome of the review and optimisation of the execution strategy by WAPCo’s team and the contractors.
“WAPCo is grateful to the West African Gas Pipeline Authority (WAGPA), Ministry of Energy (MoE), the Ghana Grid Company Ltd (GRIDCo), the Volta River Authority (VRA), the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC), the Ghana National Gas Company (GNGC), the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) and other key stakeholders for their support to minimise the impact of the shutdown on communities as well as the safe and successful execution of this project,” it
