The Ghana Gas Company has said power supply in Ghana will be stabilized within the next twelve days after it has completed the tie in of pipelines from the Western part of the country to the Eastern part.
There has been unannounced power cut in some parts of the country over the past few weeks.
Ghana Gas is supervising the connection of pipelines from Atuabo gas in the Western region to that of the West African Gas processing company.
Addressing the press on Monday, CEO of Ghana Gas Dr. Ben Asante was hopeful that the situation should normalize within the stipulated time period.
“Ten to twelve days are needed for effective interconnection with the West African gas pipeline. It is not just connecting two pieces of pipe. There are a lot of work that needs to be done…Before you are able to weld two pieces of pipe together you have to make sure that your entire system is depressurized. So all that has to be done.
“When that is completed, the exciting news for all Ghanaians is that, we are going to have the benefit of about 33000,000 scarfs. Compared to what we have now which is 120,000,000…That is exciting news – We do not have to be subjected to the intermittent power supply from Nigeria,” he added.
