WAPCo To Undertake Planned10-Day Shutdown Of Its Takoradi Facility
The West African Gas Pipeline Company Limited (WAPCo) has notified the general public concerning a plan to undertake a 10-day maintenance shutdown of its Takoradi Regulating and Metering Station.
In a press release dated January 11, 2023, WAPCo indicated that the shutdown is scheduled for 12th to 22nd January 2023 respectively.
The essence of the shutdown according to the official statement “is to allow for the replacement of some critical valves at the facility aimed at securing the safety and integrity of the Takoradi Station”.
“There will be no gas transportation from our Takoradi facility to customers in the
Tema power enclave during the period of the shutdown. We will however continue to deliver gas
from Nigeria to Tema based on volumes agreed between the customer and the shipper”.
The shut down which is supported by the Ministry of Energy (MoE) and coordinated with Ghana Grid Company Ltd (GRIDCo), the Volta River Authority (VRA), the Ghana National Petroleum
Corporation (GNPC), Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), and other key stakeholders are meant to minimize the impact of the shutdown on communities that rely on power generated from cleaner and more efficient gas transported through the West African Gas Pipeline (WAGP).
