In an interview, the Chief Executive Officer of Ghana Gas, Dr George Adja-Sipa Yankey, said gas started flowing to the plants at Aboadze yesterday.
“I must applaud the hard work of the staff of Ghana Gas, especially the young engineering team who had, over the period and backed by other teams within the company, delivered quality services,” he said.
The VRA had to switch to light crude oil for the production of electricity during the maintenance period.
The AMERI power plant is commissioned to run on gas and will be supplied with the chunk of the 110 million standard cubic feet of gas from Atuabo.
It is expected that the units at the Takoradi International Plant (TICO) and the T1 plant will share the rest of the gas.
The other units of the VRA will then be maintained on light crude until an increase in gas volumes from phase II of the Ghana Gas project, the completion of the ENI-Sankofa or improved supply from Nigeria.
