Energy Minister, John Peter Amewu says the successful transfer of Karpowership from Tema to Sekondi, means the cost of production will go down.
He said with the relocation, it will take sometime for the barge to be tied to the Ghana Gas System to fire the plants. Till then, the Karpowership will run on heavy fuel.
Mr. Amewu said this when he inspected ongoing works at the Sekondi Naval Base where the ship has docked.
He was however not happy with the delay in getting the first gas fired to the plant due to some issues between ENI Gas and Ghana Gas. Mr Amewu said government will not entertain any further delays as it will hurt the country.
David Ben Ayun, General Manager of Amandi Energy, one of the contractors working on the pipelines, said the first gas from the pipeline to the Karpowership is expected by the end of next month.
