Nigeria Gas Not Yet In Sight
Nigeria Gas Not Yet In Sight Website
There are strong indications that Ghana may not draw natural gas from the West Africa Gas Pipeline (WAGP) project any time soon. This follows resistance by producers in Nigeria to sell the product at low prices. Joy News’s Araba Koomson reported from Nigeria that although fuel prices are low in Nigerian, the cost of production is high. That she said is because the Nigerian government has put pressure on the producers to sell the product at very low prices. According to her the producers are arguing that they cannot afford to sell the product at such low prices to other African countries. Negotiations are however underway to get the workers to soften their stance. This means that Ghana’s yearn for natural gas to augment her energy needs remains a mirage. Apart from the issue of cost, equipment that is supposed to compress the gas and make it useful has not been installed yet. The manager of the WAGP Company Mr. Jacque Darison told Joy News that the compressing plant is under construction.
