West Africa gas pipeline restarts operations after short pause

(Togo First) - Gas exports from Nigeria to Benin, Togo, and Ghana have restarted. The news was announced by the West African Gas Pipeline Company (WAPCo) last week, the firm that runs the pipeline through which the gas is exported. 

Operations at the facility had been halted for cleaning and inspection which were supposed to be completed at the end of March 2020. The works, completed earlier than expected, “will help us provide reliable and improved service to our customers in Ghana, Togo, and Benin, and back their efforts to foster better access to cheap, and reliable energy for economic growth,” says WAPCo.

During the inspection and cleaning of the 569km-long infrastructure, the WAPCo put in place an important database that will be analyzed in the coming months, in order to establish standards for improving the pipeline’s integrity and safety. 

The pipeline’s shareholding includes Chevron (36.9%), the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation or NNPC (24.9%), Shell (17.9%), Takoradi Power Company (16.3%), Société Togolaise de Gaz (2%) and BenGaz S.A. (2%).
