Energy Minister Dr Mathew Opoku Prempeh has urged the Board of the Ghana National Gas Company to ensure the establishment of the country’s second gas processing plant.

Stressing the importance of gas in the nation’s industrialisation agenda, Dr Prempeh said the country’s second gas processing plant in his view is long overdue “especially as the population expands and over 70% of our fuel requirement for power generation is met by natural gas.”

The Energy Minister said this when he joined the Board at their maiden meeting for the new year 2022.

The meeting provided the opportunity for open and frank discussions on the future of the company which is inextricably tied to Ghana’s Gas prospects.

Dr Prempeh reminded the Board of the crucial role that the company has to play in Ghana’s LPG for development agenda and also within the context of the country’s commitment to the Paris Agreement.

Further to this, the Board was also reminded of the key contribution it has to make with the relevant stakeholders in the realization of the President’s Petroleum Hub vision by 2030.

As sector Minister, Dr Prempeh stated that he remains optimistic that with hard work, team work, tenacity of purpose and an unalloyed sense of patriotism, the energy sector will continue to provide the needed support for the national economy.
