The Jubilee Oil Fields Is Shutting Down And It Might Cause Dumsor

Oil production on the Jubilee Field will be shut down for 15 days, starting February 3, 2017, to allow for an interconnection with the Tweneboa, Enyera and Ntomme (TEN) operations.

The planned shutdown will lead to immediate curtailment of production and export of natural gas from the FPSO Kwame Nkrumah to the Atuabo Gas Processing Plant and subsequently stop the supply of lean gas from the plant to the power generating enclave at Aboadze.

However, the shutdown might affect electricity supply in the country as the terminal is the main gas supply for the Volta River Authority.

The Jubilee Field adds about 340 megawatts of power to the national grid which helps to ease energy supply challenges.

The Corporate Communications Manager of Ghana Gas, Mr Alfred Ogbamey, in an interview with the Daily Graphic, expressed the hope that ‘dumsor’ would be avoided, saying inter-communication between the power institutions would allow all stakeholders to plan ahead to sustain delivery.
