The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) is expected to release a schedule to guide citizens in parts of the country for a 14-day power cut period.

There will be erratic power supply as a result of a shutdown of the Atuabo Gas Processing Plant in the Western Region.

The Ghana Gas Company Limited commenced a maintenance programme at the Atuabo Gas Processing Plant on March 25, 2023, according to a press statement released by the Ministry of Energy.

According to the statement dated March 29, “the shutdown will affect gas supply to some power plants and will ultimately result in interruption of power supply to some consumers”, thus warranting a schedule from the ECG.

On the matter, Director of communications with Ghana Gas, Ernest Owusu Bempah, stated that “the engineers thought it wise that we need to do some major maintenance hence the shutdown.”

As the Ghana Gas Company Limited works to address the situation at the Atuabo Gas Processing Plant, the Energy Ministry has pledged to procure additional gas, which will include Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO) and Light Crude Oil (LCO) “to complement available domestic gas for power generation.”
