Over the next three months, Togo, Benin, and Ghana will get fewer gas supplies from Nigeria

(Togo First) - Throughout the current quarter, Togo, Benin, and Ghana will get fewer gas supplies from Nigeria. This is due to inspection and cleaning works which will begin on the West African Gas Pipeline (WAGP) from January 20th and end on, or before, March 21st. 

The news was disclosed in a statement issued by the West African Gas Pipeline Company (WAPCo) which operates the infrastructure. It was also confirmed by the Ghanaian Ministry of energy.

The works will limit gas supplies in Ghana and could adversely impact Togo’s power output. 

So far, Togolese authorities made no comments regarding the announcement. However, let’s recall that the country highly depends on gas to produce electricity. The fuel is especially important for the Contour Global power plant as it fully runs on liquefied natural gas (LNG).
