Ghana National Gas Company, a mid-stream gas company responsible for operations, processing and delivery of natural gas in the country, has recently announced a retirement of its board of non-executive directors. The board, consisting of six members, will be officially dissolved on February 4.

In it’s farewell statement, the board reminded about major achievements of previous years, which included:

  • Establishing the administrative and operational of the company from scratch and superintending the recruitment of key staffs.
  • An onshore gas processing facility to process raw natural gas and produce various products including lean gas for power production, liquefied petroleum gas and other natural gas liquids for domestic and industrial use
  • Implementation of the Western Gas infrastructure project.

The board of Ghana Gas expressed its gratitude to the government of Ghana, as well as to the chinese Sinopec International Petroleum Service Corporation, which contributed a lot to implementation of major infrastructure projects by Ghana Gas, by providing financing and expertise. The most recent project that would probably not be implemented without chinese assistance, was the Ghana Western Corridor Gas Infrastructure Development Project.

In 2014, Ghana National Gas Company was nominated for “Best Enterprise 2014” by the Europe Business Assembly (EBA). The same year, CEO of GNGC, George Sipa-Adjah Yankey, has also been nominated in the “Manager of the Year” category. George Yankey led the company since its establishement in 2011. In 2014, the state-owned Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) took decision to take over Ghana Gas, as a step in consolidating country’s gas and petroleum assets. However, the process took more than a year and was finalized in the end of 2015.
