Gas supply from Chevron Nigeria Limited to the Volta River Authority (VRA) is expected to reduce by 100 megawatts, the management of the authority has announced.

This follows the commencement of a compressor upgrade activity from February 20 to March 17, this year. “This will further reduce gas supply to VRA,” management noted in a statement issued recently.

“As a follow up to our previous announcement on the shortfall in gas supply from Nigeria, which has affected power supply over the past two weeks, we have also been informed that Chevron Nigeria Limited will commence compressor upgrade activity from February 20 to March 17, 2012.”

According to the company, it does not expect any substantial reduction in power supply during the afore-mentioned period “except during peak hours from 6pm to 10pm when we could experience a shortfall up to 100 megawatt.”

The Volta River Authority (VRA) not quite long ago announced that a drastic reduction in gas supply from Nigeria through the West African Gas Pipeline to its thermal plants was forcing power companies to embark on a load management exercise.

It requested the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) to undertake a load management exercise in various parts of the country until the situation returns to normalcy.

VRA said discussions were ongoing with the suppliers of the gas to increase supply from the current 40 million standard cubic feet per day (mscf/d) to the contractual volumes of 100 mscf/d to enable the company operate all its thermal facilities.
