Ghana Gas Company has completed a Front-End Engineering and Design for a 300Million standard cubic feet of gas per day (300MMscf/d) Gas Processing Plant, which will be developed in phases, the first phase being 150MMscf/d (Phase II-A) and the second Phase II-B. The entire 300MMscf/d constitutes the second plant (second train in industry terminology) to the existing 150MMscf/d Atuabo plant and will be located just north of the first train.
The state gas company is in discussion with some companies, but wants to expand the dialogue to more local and international enterprises with expertise in the field to build the facility and co-own it and co-run it on equity participation basis with Ghana Gas (BCCT basis). It will cost up to $400Million to install. Gas will come from Tullow Oil operated Jubilee field and TEN cluster of fields, as is the case with the first train. This planned expansion assumes that Tullow has enough gas reserves to underpin the project.
Ghana Gas is hoping that interested parties can show up early enough to sign the necessary documents and get the facility up and running by 2024.
