Gas flow to Atuabo process plant despite numerous concerns

Gas today flowed from the FPSO Kwame Nkrumah to the Atuabo gas processing plant notwithstanding the serious concerns raised by the Energy Commission and the Wood Group.

Dr. Ben K.B Asante, Director of Technical Operations at the Ghana National Gas Company (Ghana Gas), confirmed this to Joy FM’s Top Story and suggested that concerns raised by the two groups were misplaced.   

The Energy Commission over the weekend wrote a letter to Ghana Gas, asking it to halt introducing gas into the plant. This follows a technical review of the plant in Atuabo by the Wood Group. It raised issues about the mechanical completion of the Gas Processing Plant, claiming its mechanical completion dossiers are sub-standard and don’t fully confirm completion of the project.

But Dr. K.B. Asante indicated that Ghanaians could disregard the concerns and rather celebrate the first flow of gas into the plant after months of delay.
