The West Africa Gas Pipeline Company (WAPCo) has assured Ghanaians that there will be a regular supply of gas.
WAPCo went on to say that not even the disruptions in business caused by the outbreak of the coronavirus would affect the flow of gas.
The company, has, however, admitted there are challenges in transporting technical staff but gave the assurance that the outbreak of the coronavirus would not affect operations.
The company’s managing director, Gregory Germani, revealed that there is a business continuity plan in place.
For that reason, he went on, there is no way the outbreak of COVID-19 would disrupt the flow of gas.
Per a report by thebftonline.com https://thebftonline.com/2020/editors-pick/wapco-commits-to-reliable-gas-despite-covid-19-fears/, he, however, admitted that there could be a few challenges if the epidemic prolongs.
Germani went on to say that WAPCo is working hard with the Ministry of Energy, the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation and other partners to ensure that challenges are dealt with before they affect the production of gas.
In other news, the Chamber of Petroleum Consumers (COPEC), has expressed concerns about the continuous charging of the cylinder recirculation levy paid by consumers despite an assurance given by the Minister of Energy, John Peter Amewu, that it had been withdrawn.
According to COPEC, the controversial 13.5 pesewas fee is still being charged at fuel stations all over Ghana.
The Chamber is already in court, together with the Consumer Protection Agency (CPA), to ensure that the National Petroleum Authority (NPA) refrains from imposing the charge.
