Ghana to receive gas as West African Gas Pipeline Company completes repair works

Repair works at the West African Gas Pipelines are complete.

The Company shut down its pipelines for repairs following loss of pressure around the Lome segments of the line in Togo. The damage was caused by a vessel.

Managers of the West African Gas Pipeline Company (WAGPCo) indicated that the damage affected their goal of ensuring the resumption of gas supply to feed electric energy generating plants by April 30 2013.

Corporate Affairs at the West African Gas Pipeline Company, Harriet Wereko- Brobby says following completed repair works, gas has been released from Nigeria into the pipes.

This would mean that Ghana should soon receive adequate gas to power of plants and generate more power

The pipelines was shut in August last year after a Togolese navy ship ran into one of the pipes in that country’s waters.

The 678 kilometre West African Gas Pipeline (WAGP) links into the existing Escravos-Lagos pipeline at the Nigeria Gas Company’s Itoki Natural Gas Export Terminal in Nigeria and proceeds to a beachhead in Lagos.

From there it moves offshore to Takoradi, in Ghana, with purified natural gas delivery laterals from the main line extending to Cotonou (Benin), Lome (Togo) and Tema (Ghana).
