NOTICE OF MANDATORY MAINTAINANCE AT ATUABO GAS PROCESSING PLANT
Ghana National Gas Company (Ghana Gas) is scheduled to commence a planned, mandatory maintenance at its Atuabo Gas Processing Plant on Wednesday, August 31, 2016. The Atuabo Gas Processing Plant and its allied gas infrastructure will, therefore, be temporary shut down during the maintenance period.
The planned maintenance, the third since lean gas and associated liquids production began, is expected to last approximately Ten (10) calendar days.
The plant has been in operation for more than 12,000 hours since pre-commissioning and commissioning activities began in 2014.
The mandatory outage is required by original equipment manufacturers and vendors for maintenance of certain critical components in the gas processing plant on a periodic basis. It is also to facilitate warranty assurance on the installed equipment and the validity of our operating insurance cover.
Ghana gas is in communication with the Volta River Authority (VRA), the primary downstream lean gas off-taker, and the other product off-takers, as well as the upstream gas supplier, Tullow Ghana Limited, to ensure a smooth implementation and completion of the planned maintenance works.
The company will also update appropriate stakeholders on the progress of work.
