LNG Power Plant Construction Progressing in Ghana

Ghana is set to open sub-Saharan Africa’s first liquefied natural gas-to-power project as it moves to position itself as a hub for the cleaner and cheaper fuel

Ghana is set to open sub-Saharan Africa’s first liquefied natural gas-to-power project as it moves to position itself as a hub for the cleaner and cheaper fuel in the region. Tema LNG Terminal C received the floating regasification unit from Jiangnan, China, paving the way for the supply of 1.7 million tons of natural gas per year for power generation sometime this quarter.

The company, backed by Helios Investment Partners and Africa Infrastructure Investment Managers, began building the USD 350 million project about two years ago.

Tema LNG Terminal is getting its gas under a long-term contract with Royal Dutch Shell Plc. State-owned Ghana National Petroleum Corp. is currently the mandatory off-taker who will receive regasified LNG to fuel plants in the Tema power and industrial enclave.
