Following the arrival of its first Floating Regasification Unit (FRU) in Ghana, Tema LNG Terminal Company (TLTC) is expected to deliver LNG to its customers during the first quarter of 2021.
To remind, Tema LNG Terminal Company is Ghana’s first LNG import, storage and transportation company.
As the company explained, the terminal will be the first offshore LNG receiving terminal in sub-Saharan Africa.
In fact, it will utilize the FRU twinned with the existing LNG carrier to receive, store and regasify LNG.
Located within the Tema Port, the FRU will operate in conjunction with infrastructure that allows for cost-efficient processes and without affecting maritime and port traffic.
“The Tema LNG terminal aims to meet Ghana’s growing energy demand through an innovative yet cost-efficient, reliable supply”.
…stated Edmund Agyeman-Duah, TLTC Project Manager.
The FRU will allow the Tema LNG facility to receive, regasify, store and deliver roughly 1.7 million tonnes of LNG a year – 30% of Ghana’s general capacity.
Tema LNG’s year-round supply of gas will enable the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) to supply reliable and cost-effective gas into the Tema power and industrial enclave, while strengthening West Africa’s energy security.
“Concluding, the terminal project supports Ghana’s ambitions to continue on its trajectory as one of the fastest growing economies in Africa, by delivering the energy infrastructure to support accelerated industrialisation”… stated Ogbemi Ofuya, Helios Investment Partners.
