Atuabo plant starts delivery of LPG



By: Attah-Effah Badu, Daily Express

Delivery of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) from the Atuabo Gas Processing Plant has commenced. Officials told the Daily Express that nine (9) trucks were loaded on Friday from the premises of Quantum Gas, a private tank farm, which has so far received in excess of 500mt of LPG.

“On Saturday, eleven (11) trucks were loaded with LPG for the market, making a total of 450mt of LPG so far released into the market from the Atuabo Plant”, officials say.

The production and delivery of LPG is yet another giant step in the operations of the Plant owned and operated by the Ghana National Gas Company (Ghana Gas).

With an expected daily production of 60 million standard cubic feet (mmscf), LPG production is expected to hit 250mt daily, which translates into between ten and fifteen trucks of LPG per day.

The Atuabo plant is currently supplying all the fuel needs of the Thermal Plants at Aboadze, with a daily capacity of 50mmscf as of last Saturday.

The Daily Express has gathered that with its current rate of production, the Atuabo plant will have more lean gas available than the demand of the plants in the Aboadze enclave. There are a number of thermal plants that are not operational in the enclave.

More than 100MW of power is been generated from Aboadze, relying on gas from Atuabo.

Production and operations at the Atuabo Plant has been smooth and incident-free, with engineers at the plant suggesting that but for a few hitches from the FPSO, the plant should be producing more than the current 50mmscf.
