Ghana Gas ready as final test proves successful

Posted on : Wednesday , 10th September 2014

 The Ghana National Gas Company (Ghana Gas) has expressed satisfaction with work on the Atuabo Gas Plant as a test run on the plant proved successful.

A series of tests was carried out over the weekend on the 111-kilometre Onshore pipelines from Atuabo in the Ellembelle district to Aboadze in the Shama district.
The test formed part of the process to check the integrity of the pipeline and to identify and correct potential leakages along the pipeline before the tie-in of the Atuabo Gas Processing Plant (GPP) to the Jubilee field gas reservoirs.
It followed the conclusion of mechanical completion of the Western Corridor Gas Infrastructure Development Project (WCGIDP) and successful hydro-testing of its Offshore Pipeline.
A statement from GGC however, indicated: “During the test, a pin-hole leak was identified at one of the over 10,000 pipe joints laid under the surface of the earth. Appropriate isolation valves have subsequently been engaged and plans for remedial works promptly begun”.
“We are satisfied with the test on the onshore pipeline and we are excited by the fact that just a small portion of the pipeline has thrown up a minor challenge that would be rectified by tomorrow” Director of Operations, Dr Ben Asante, said.
The statement assured the public that “there are no safety concerns whatsoever and we are satisfied with the safety protocol being employed for the testing of the pipeline”.
