AMERI Power Plant
Ghana is losing a huge amount of $9.9 million on a monthly basis to the owners of the Africa & Middle East Resource Investment (AMERI) power plant for no work done.
Currently, the turret bearing challenge confronting the Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel (FPSO Kwame Nkrumah) has forced the Jubilee partners to decrease gas supply to GNG. The gas supply was 87 million standard cubic feet (scf-d) a day to 47 million scf-d.
An amount of $9.9 million is expected to be paid to them every month according to the country’s agreement with owners of the power plant. It is for their conversion of natural gas supplied from the Atuabo gas processing plant to produce 250 megawatts power to the national grid.
This has left the Ghana National Gas Company (GNGC) Limited stranded, thus unable to supply the AMERI plant with gas.
Since the defective turret was no longer in control of the anchoring system of the vessel Tullow Oil source have mainly associated the challenge to bad weather conditions.
