Ghana Gas Reacts To COPEC’s Lower Quality Claims

THE GHANA National Gas Company has dismissed claims by the Chamber of Petroleum Consumer (COPEC) that liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) it supplies onto the market is of inferior quality.

Executive Secretary of COPEC, Duncan Amoah, who raised the red flag over the quality of LPG supplied by the Atuabo Gas Company to consumers, said the product from the company was contaminated and that it was likely to cause explosion if not checked.

However, in a statement signed by its Head of Corporate Communications, Ernest Kofi Owusu-Bempah Bonsu, Ghana Gas said it ensured that the quality of LPG and the standards for quality determination of LPG were in alignment with both local and international standards.

It said LPG produced from Atuabo Gas plant was a rich and sweet feedstock with negligible/trace amounts of undeniable compounds.
