ZEAL ENVIRONMENTAL Technologies Limited (ZETL), the company responsible for managing oil waste at the Jubilee Field, has stated its preparedness to manage waste that would be generated at the gas processing plant after the completion of the project.
According to Kwaku Ennin, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of ZETL, his outfit had signed an agreement with Lonrho, the London based company which would construct and manage a logistics port along the coast of the western region, to set up a waste processing plant at the port.
He said “we have signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Lonrho to set up a facility right at the terminal to take advantage of its proximity to the gas facility that will be set up there. We will manage the waste that will be generated both from the gas plant and the port terminal.”
Mr. Ennin disclosed this when selected journalists undergoing a training programme on oil and gas visited his plant at Takoradi in the Western region.
He also noted that “our newly installed oily waste water separating plant here in Takoradi would also enable us to process gas condensate to be generated by West Africa Gas Pipeline.”
He indicated that “ZETL is in the process of installing an industrial incinerator, the first of its kind in the country purposely to serve the oil field activities as well as the mining sector.
“The incinerator will help both oil and mining companies to adopt best industrial practices in managing waste.”
