Ghana LPG jetty reopens

ACCRA, June 15, 2018 – Operations of the LPG jetty at Tema port have resumed following repairs, local media reported on Thursday.


The jetty, which was damaged in a rainstorm on May 25, was repaired by the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority, Ghana Web news portal reported.

“A team of engineers from the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA) dismounted the damaged loading arm for repair works at the dry dock in the hope that they will complete the repairs within one week of the commencement of work,” the National Petroleum Authority (NPA) said in a statement. “The incident however sparked concerns of a potential gas shortage in the system, but the NPA relied on LPG production from the Tema Oil Refinery (TOR) and Ghana National Gas Company (GNGC), to ensure there was no disruption to gas supply.”
