|West African Gas Pipeline resumes gas deliveries but with less gas|

The West African Gas Pipeline Company (WAPCo), operator of the West African Gas Pipeline (WAGP) system has resumed gas receipts into its pipeline. WAPCo was forced to shut off gas receipts as the gas that was being received at the company's Itoki Receipt terminal exceeded allowable gas specifications for moisture content.This situation led to a shortfall of gas available for delivery to its customers. As a result of improved gas specification WAPCo has resumed accepting gas made available at the receipt point for delivery to its customers.
While the situation of gas moisture content has improved, the gas supply situation remains a challenge with WAGP receiving less than the contractual volume of gas resulting in a shortfall of gas available for delivery to customers.
