WEAN GHANA GAS OFF GOVERNMENT SUPPORT – ENERGY MINISTER

ACCRA, Minister for Energy Boakye Agyarko has inaugurated the newly constituted nine member Board of Directors of the Ghana National Gas Company Limited (GNGC) with a call on them to transform the company to become a world class gas company that generates sustainable revenue stream.

According to him, President Akufo-Addo does not expect them to continue to run to government for financial support.

I also expect you to lead the expansion of the gas infrastructure as it currently exists through viable financing strategies for its implementation. There will be challenges, but I believe that together, we can do it, he said.

The new board is chaired by former Member of Parliament for Cape Coast Christine Churcher.

Churcher, who expressed the gratitude of the board to the President for the appointment, emphasised on the benefits of natural gas to the economy.

With the ITLOS ruling in favour of Ghana our reserves will now come on stream without any interference on exploration, drilling, production and supply,” she said.

She pledged the commitment of the board to ensure that there is safe delivery of gas in the country.

We shall be the game changer in the energy space and resource sector, she said.
