Energy ministry: Power outages loom over Atuabo Gas Plant repairs

The Ghana Gas Company Limited has shut down the Atuabo Gas Processing Plant for routine maintenance for the next two weeks, an official statement said.

A statement issued by the Ministry of Energy on Wednesday (29 March) says the shutdown will affect power supply to some consumers, adding that measures are being put in place to lessen the impact.

“The shutdown will affect gas supply to some power plants and will ultimately result in interruption of power supply to some consumers. In the circumstance, the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) will shortly release a schedule to that effect,” the statement said.

“In order to manage the impact of the shutdown, government is processing additional gas from Nigeria, Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO) and Light Crude Oil (LCO) to complement available domestic gas for power generation,” it added.
