Nigeria promises reliable and increase gas supply to Ghana

Nigeria has promised to increase the volume of gas supplied to Ghana under the West African Gas Pipeline project.

This was confirmed during a West African Energy Ministers meeting in Accra to discuss issues pertaining to the West African Gas Pipeline project.

Ministers from Nigeria, Ghana, and Benin also discussed how to make gas for the pipeline reliable for beneficiary countries.

They are also discussing a possible review of tariffs charged to consumers who benefit from the gas.

Addressing the team of ministers, Group Executive Director in charge of gas and power at the Nigerian National Petroleum Commission, Dr David Ige said within the next few weeks there will be an increase in the supply of gas to Ghana to about 90 million cubic feet.

Ghana has in recent times complained about the failure of their Nigerian partners to meet the earlier 60million cubic feet of gas agreed under the West African gas pipeline project but Dr Ige is convinced they will be able to meet the new demands.

He explained the populous West African country will increase to 200million cubic feet, the amount of gas to its national grid and that will help in the supply to neighboring countries. Read More...
