Flare-gas from Nigeria to Ghana

Feb 24, 1997 01:00 AM

Chevron has signed a letter of intent to supply Nigerian natural gas to Ghana via a pipeline through Benin and Togo.This could be the first stage in a proposed West African Gas Pipeline Project (WAGP) which would use associated natural gas from Nigeria, most of which is currently flared. Signed by Chevron and Ghana National Petroleum, the letter of intent covers the supply of gas to the Volta River Authority's Takoradi thermal power plant project. "The project offers both economic and environmental benefits," said Richard Matzke, president of Chevron Overseas Petroleum. Regional economic co-operation is one of the goals of the Economic Community of West African States of which Nigeria, Ghana, Benin and Togo are members. The project will greatly reduce gas flaring in the Escravos area operated by the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation/Chevron joint venture.
