The West Africa Gas Pipeline Company Limited says it would not do anything that will jeopardize Ghana’s power sector.
This was disclosed by General Manager Corporate Affairs of WAPCo Dr. Isaac Adjei Doku in response to suggestions of the company shutting down its pipeline to compel government to pay monies it was owed.
According to Dr. Doku WAPCo is bound by a treaty that ensures the company will not do anything to deliberately sabotage any of the countries in which it operates.
Dr. Doku further explained that the company’s main business is to transport gas from identified shippers to off-takers for a fee.
He said the shippers are the companies that produce the gas, while the off-takers are the countries to which WAPCo supplies the gas.
Dr. Doku said it is only the shipper which can decide whether or not they will continue to supply gas whenever countries default on payments for gas supplied.
Dr. Doku said the only thing WAPCo does when a client defaults on payment is to write to the shipper communicating the issues with payments.
General Manager Corporate Affairs of WAPCo Dr. Isaac Adjei Doku was speaking at an engagement with sections of the media in Ghana.
Dr. Doku said Ghana remains one of WAPCo’s biggest customers.
