The West African Gas Pipeline Company Limited (WAPCo) is pleased to announce that it has safely and successfully completed the valve replacement works at its Takoradi Regulating and Metering (R&M) Station and has resumed gas transportation to customers in Tema.
WAPCo on January 12, 2023, shut down the Takoradi facility to allow for the replacement of some critical valves at the facility aimed at securing the safety and integrity of the Takoradi Station. The replacement exercise was projected to last for 10days.
The WAPCo project team worked collaboratively with our contractors and stakeholders to ensure that the shutdown activities were safely and seamlessly executed and completed days ahead of schedule. The early completion of the works is an outcome of the review and optimization of the execution strategy by WAPCo’s team and the Contractor.
WAPCo is grateful to the West African Gas Pipeline Authority (WAGPA), Ministry of Energy (MoE), the Ghana Grid Company Ltd (GRIDCo), the Volta River Authority (VRA), the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC), the Ghana National Gas Company (GNGC), the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) and other key stakeholders for their support to minimize the impact of the shutdown on communities as well as the safe and successful execution of this project.
