Ghana Gas wins International Quality Management Award

atuaboThe Ghana National Gas Company (Ghana Gas) has been adjudged among winners of the prestigious international “ESQR’s Quality Achievements Award 2015” in Quality Management by the European Society for Quality Research.

The company was among successful recipients of the ESQR Award honoured on June 14, 2015 at a Convention and Awards Gala Dinner at the five-star Grange St Paul’s Hotel in the heart of London’s financial district.
Dr Ben Asante, the Director of Engineering and Technical Services, and Mr George Amoako-Adjei, the Director of Commercial Operations of Ghana Gas, received the award on behalf of the company at the Switzerland-based ESQR-organised event.
The event attracted business leaders, academic experts and quality professionals from around the globe.

Recognition
The ESQR’s Quality Achievement Award recognises organisations, companies and public administrations that have demonstrated outstanding commitment, support and efforts to endorse and improve achievements in Quality Management.
Award-winning companies, organisations and public administrations are selected by ESQR based on the results of the ESQR’s polls, consumer opinion research and market study.
Dr A. Arista, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the ESQR, had earlier written to the CEO of Ghana Gas, Dr George Sipa-Adjah Yankey, to notify him of the selection for the award.
Dr Arista explained that the selection process for the awards included the research of public information sources, publications and positive remarks, advertising campaigns, charity projects, chambers of commerce and university projects, trade fairs and exhibitions.

Ghana Gas
Incorporated as a limited liability entity in July 2011 and charged with the mandate to build, own and operate infrastructure required for the gathering, processing, transporting and marketing of natural gas resources in the country, Ghana Gas has supervised the design, construction and operation of Ghana’s premier gas processing plant.
The company has enabled Ghana to monetise and utilise its domestic gas resources to accelerate national industrialisation by providing cost competitive natural gas and gas-based products for the domestic markets.
It is aiding in the reduction of Ghana’s energy deficit by contributing over 400 megawatts of power to the national energy mix, by providing lean gas to the Aboadze Thermal enclave.
It will produce 180,000 tonnes of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) per year for the domestic market, 46,000 tonnes of condensates annually and over 15,000 tonnes of isopentanes a year.
The Ghana Gas-operated Atuabo Gas Processing Plant began commercial operation on April 1, 2015 after its successful commissioning process ended on March 31, 2015.
