  • Atuabo Gas processing plantThe Board of the Ghana National Gas Company (Ghana Gas) has, by a resolution, announced the retirement of the non-executive directors of the company, effective February 4, 2016.

    The announcement, which was contained in a press release issued in Accra and signed by the Board Chairman, Dr Kwesi Botchwey, named the other outgoing members as Dr Valerie Esther Sawyerr, Mr Eric Nathaniel Yankah and Mr William Patrick Tewiah.

    On assumption of office in July, 2011, the board immediately commenced operations by successfully establishing the administrative and operational structures of the company from scratch and superintended the recruitment of key staff.

    Following the review of the Gas Task Force Report and the then options for the development of gas infrastructure, the board decisively chose a configuration of having an onshore gas processing facility to process raw natural gas and produce various products, including lean gas for power production, liquefied petroleum gas and other natural gas liquids for domestic and industrial use.

    The board implemented the Western Gas Infrastructure Project and successfully procured the gas processing plant, associated pipelines and auxiliary equipment into operation in November, 2014, in spite of a number of incipient challenges that the company faced during the development phase of the project.

    “Today, the company is well-grounded and has successfully completed a first full year of commercial operations, has suitably trained to man its facilities and operations and is poised to maintain its leadership in the downstream gas market in Ghana,” the release said.

    It expressed gratitude for the support received from the government and major stakeholders including SinoPec of China, which was the main contractor for the gas infrastructure project and the chiefs and people of the respective traditional areas within the project’s operalional area.

    The release also commended the management and staff of the company for their sense of diligence and dedication to duty, without which the company would not have  chalked up its achievements.

    It hoped that the incoming board  would be given the same level of support from all the stakeholders.
