South Africa Will Increase Gas Imports-Official

South Africa will increase gas imports as it seeks a stop to chronic electricity shortages, the country’s executive cabinet has noted. The gas imports are expected to come mostly through an existing pipeline from neighbouring Mozambique, although a liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal also has been discussed. The Mozambique-South Africa pipeline delivers 348 MMscf/d of Mozambican Natural gas into South Africa, from which the Sasol owned 175 MW gasfired plant is fueled. The bulk of South Africa’s gas turbine power plants are owned by the state monopoly Eskom, which currently uses diesel to fire those turbines. Eskom’s spokesman Andrew Etzinger said over the Christmas 2014 holidays that the utility had “secured funding for its gas turbines to run for January” 2015. This must not be construed to mean that gas is the fuel; Eskom’s ‘gas turbines are entirely fuelled by diesel.

Ghana: Atuabo Ramps up To 48MMscf/d

Ghana’s brand new Atuabo Gas Processing Plant flamed to life in November 2014 and was providing 48 MMscf/d to thermal plants at the Volta River Authority (VRA) station by December 5, 2014.  The plant capacity is 120MMsc/d but the current output is already close to the volume delivered to the country from Nigeria through the West Africa Gas Pipeline.
“Atuabo is working and helping to ease energy challenges”, said  Alfred Ogbamey, Communication Manager of Ghana National Gas Company (GNGC). “It’s been providing lean gas for VRA every day since November 24, 2014”.

Natural gas started flowing from the Jubilee Fields to the $1-billion plant on November 10, 2014, with an average 16 million MMscf/d for pre-commissioning and commissioning.
That followed the successful physical tie-in of the flexible riser of the FPSO Kwame Nkrumah to the onshore gas processing plant. Ogbamey says that officials at the VRA “are even more excited with the quality of gas they are getting than us at Ghana Gas”.
