    Atuabo Gas Plant

    THE GHANA Gas Company says is taking steps to protect its pipelines that transport gas from its processing plant at Atuabo to the Volta River Authority thermal plants at Aboadze in the western region.

    There’s however, a concern that the 110-kilometer pipeline which runs through six districts could be destroyed by illegal miners who are digging all around it.

    Joy News is learning that security personnel in the last few weeks arrested some people who were mining close to the pipelines. Petroleum minister Emmanuel Armah Kofi Buah tells Joynews extra security on the pipelines is crucial to avoid a disaster.

    He indicated construction of a specialized road to transport LPG for local consumption is been stepped up as well.
