The Minister for Energy, Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh has charged the newly inaugurated governing board of Ghana Gas to rectify the liquidity challenges that have bedeviled the Gas to the Power sector and its trickle-down effects on the gas sector services.
According to the Minister, the Ministry through the Energy Sector Recovery Programme (ESRP) is currently piloting the Natural Gas Clearinghouse concept, which is aimed at ensuring equitable and smooth distribution of gas sector revenues to all sector players.
He further called for the need for the full cooperation of Ghana Gas to ensure that this concept of revenue distribution becomes a success story.
Napo further stated that the nomination of the board members is indicative of His Excellency President Akufo-Addo’s confidence in their individual and collective abilities to steer the affairs of one of the key state-owned companies in Ghana’s energy sector.
