Ghana’s vice president, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has revealed that Ghana may cease importing gas by the middle of the year 2019.

Per a report by, he explained: “Ghana has enough gas to power all our plants without relying on imported gas.”

Dr. Bawumia argued that gas is cheaper than liquid fuel, and said a policy decision has been taken “to switch largely to the use of gas in energy generation” in Ghana.

The vice-president, however, pointed out that most of the gas reserves in Ghana are accumulated in the western part of the country even though most of the power generation plants are located in the east.

He said the West Africa Gas Pipeline supplies gas from the east to the west and “we are doing a reverse-flow to move the gas from the west to the east”.
