Ghanaian citizens have been advised to prepare for a three-week period of power disruptions across the country as a result of a gas supply shortage, state-owned electricity companies announced.

In a joint statement issued on Thursday, June 13, 2024, the Ghana Grid Company LTD (GRIDCO) and the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) disclosed that the reduction in gas supply from a West African neighbor would affect electricity generation for the specified period.

According to the statement, the gas supply shortfall is attributed to maintenance activities undertaken by a Nigerian gas supplier. This maintenance work has curtailed the overall capacity for power generation in Ghana.

"The Ghana Grid Company LTD (GRIDCO) and the Electricity Company of Ghana, (ECG) wish to inform the public that due to a reduction in gas supply from Nigeria since yesterday, Wednesday 12th June, 2024, some areas across the country have experienced an interruption in power supply," the statement read.

"The West Africa Gas Pipeline Company (WAPCO) has clarified that the reduction in gas supply is linked to ongoing maintenance work by a Nigerian supplier and is expected to extend over three (3) weeks. This maintenance has resulted in a decrease in Ghana's overall power generation capacity, necessitating potential load management during this period," the companies elaborated.

Despite the challenges posed by the gas supply shortage, GRIDCO and ECG assured the public of collaborative efforts with other stakeholders in the power sector to mitigate the impact on consumers.

"We are working closely with partners across the power value chain to optimize available resources and minimize inconvenience to our esteemed consumers," the companies affirmed.



In conclusion, GRIDCO and ECG expressed regret for any inconvenience caused to Ghanaian residents and emphasized their commitment to resolving the situation promptly.
