The Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Gas Company, Dr. George Sipa Yankey has pledged to procure an additional compressor to serve as a backup to avoid a shutdown of the whenever there is mandatory maintenance work.

“By the end of this year, we would have procured the second compressor and that will enable us to work without stopping work every 4,000 hours operation of the plant.

“It will take nine months to install the processor if it is procured. The drawings have been finalised and we’ve even started with the procurement,” he told journalists that everything is set to procure an additional compressor to serve as a backup which will ensure constant supply of gas in the country.

Currently, the processing plant which was set up in 2014, operates on one compressor; a situation that results in a shutdown of the plant whenever it is time for mandatory maintenance work. This has become a major challenge to authorities of Ghana Gas Company.

The plant was shut down on January 15 by the operators to allow for maintenance work to commence having been in operation for more than 8,000 hours since last year. The maintenance was to last 14 days.

However the engineers managed to use five days to complete the work, which is the second since lean gas production started.
