Shell and GNPC blame Tema LNG delays on war in Ukraine
The developers of Ghana's gas import terminal keep postponing the start of the project. The war in Ukraine has been added to a long list of excuses about why it is so far behind schedule.
Oil companies operating in Ghana want to increase their offshore fields' gas production. They hope to convince the Akufo-Addo administration to go along with them, given the risk that Russia's war in Ukraine poses to LNG imports into Africa.
Luxembourg-based Ghanaian financier Kwaku Boakye-Adjei, who is a key figure in Ghana's Tema LNG gas import project, is also organising the construction of storage and regasification facilities in neighbouring countries to which he hopes to export gas from Ghana.
