Locally produced Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) was less than a third of the consumption in Ghana in the year 2021, according to the report of the Public Interest Accountability Committee (PIAC)
Ghana National Gas Company (Ghana Gas) sold 90,327.56Metric Tonnes of Liquefied Petroleum Gas from January to December, 2021, a figure that was less than a third of total consumption of 300,000Metric Tonnes.
This means that there’s huge opportunity for local manufacture of LPG, in a country that consumes over 300Million standard cubic feet (300MMscf/d) of lean gas, mostly for power generation.
The local production of LPG, though, has increased year on year. The 2021 output was a 11.31% increase on the 81,152.48MT produced in 2020.
