Plans for $ 54 million Tema City Gate Gas Project in Ghana on course

The objective of the Tema City Gate Gas Project is to improve GNPC’s access to potential natural gas off-takes

PLANS for the implementation of the proposed $54 million Tema City Gate Gas Project in Ghana are ongoing. A parliamentary report has revealed that the Ghana National Cooperation (GNPC) is working to obtain the pre-requisite permits to ensure that the said project takes off without any hindrances.

The permits will allow the state agency responsible for the exploration, licensing, and distribution of petroleum-related activities in Ghana, to conduct; the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA); and Topographical, Geotechnical and Hydrological Surveys in addition to Front End Engineering Design (FEED); and Engineering, Procurement, Construction, Installation and Commissioning (EPCIC) of the low and medium pressures and digitisation components.

The Tema City Gate Gas Project is expected to be executed in two phases over 48 months starting from the day it breaks grounds.

The objective of the Tema City Gate Gas Project is to improve GNPC’s access to potential natural gas off-takes as part of measures to resolve the low utilisation of natural gas, with the associated risk of take-or-pay liabilities for GNPC.

Initially designed to process natural gas at a rate of 400 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscf/d), scalable to 1,000, the project when completed is expected to create a market for low-pressure users of gas to propel the national industrialisation agenda in the port city of Tema, and Accra, the capital city.

It will also create a market for high-pressure gas, such as Composed Natural Gas (CNG), which is usually used for industries and transportation; and provide a hub for molecule allocation, monitoring, tracking, and fiscal accounting across the gas value chain.
