Ghana's LNG imports: will they start, will they last?

Ghana's LNG imports: will they start, will they last?

Report summary

After years of unreliable supply from Nigeria and delays to domestic gas developments, Ghana has planned to import LNG to address is gas shortages. LNG would allow Ghana to meet latent gas demand, as well as lowering fuel procurement costs. With a large part of existing generation from hydro, the flexibility that LNG provides will also allow sustainable power supply independent of seasonal and annual weather patterns. The Golar Tundra FSRU has been delivered to Ghana but deliveries have yet to begin as key infrastructure remain unconstructed. As indigenous gas production ramps up rapidly from 2018, the window for LNG imports is closing. Deliveries could begin early in 2017 but further delays would raise questions about the validity of the import project.
