Sustainability: This time in Africa
Africa has been struggling with the problem of energy shortage since a long time. Ghana in particular has failed to meet the high energy demand in the recent past. Low volume of gas supply from Nigeria contributed the most to the problem.
The major reasons given for the limited supply of the gas were due to continuous breach of pipelines and competition for the gas in the Nigerian gas market. The issues however were resolved in a conference which constituted of Minister of petroleum of the Republic of Nigeria, officials of the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Shell and Chevron who jointly form the N-Gas and are also responsible for natural gas supply to Ghana and a team from Ghana including Ghana’s minister of Energy and petroleum Nigeria National Petroleum Mr Emmanuel Armah-Kofi Buah
The conference ended at a positive note with the conclusion of continuous supply of gas to Ghana to operate its thermal power plants.
