POWER SUPPLY ISSUES: GAS CHALLENGE FROM NIGERIA

Thursday, 13th June, 2024

The Ghana Grid Company LTD. (GRIDCo) and the Electricity Company of Ghana, (ECG) wish to inform the public that due to a reduction in gas supply from Nigeria since yesterday, Wednesday 12th June, 2024 some areas across the country have experienced interruption in power supply.

The West African Gas Pipeline Company (WAPCo), in a statement, has explained that the reduction in gas supply was due to maintenance works being undertaken by a gas supplier in Nigeria and is projected to last three (3) weeks.

The maintenance has caused a reduction in overall power generation capacity in Ghana which could result in load management over the period of the work.

GRIDCo and ECG however, wish to assure the public that we are collaborating with other stakeholders in the power value chain to optimise available resources to ensure minimal impact of the reduction in gas supply on consumers.

GRIDCo and ECG sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused.
