The Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana National Petroleum Commission (GNPC) has visited the marine gas oil (MGO) facilities of Ghana Oil Company (GOIL), according to Ghana News Agency.
Egbert Faibile was given a familiarisation tour of the 13,500 cubic metre (m3) capacity GO-Energy facility at the Port of Takoradi and the Sekondi Naval Base on Friday; GO-Energy is a subsidiary of GOIL.
The Takoradi MGO facility was built at a cost of $15 million and supplies MGO to vessels in port; it was built four critical factors in mind: Environment, Security, Quality and Quantity, says Amentor Aziakar, operations manager of GO-Energy.
The Sekondi Naval Base MGO facility, which comprises of three tank farms totalling 1,200 m3, was constructed as a buffer for operations at Takoradi, explains Aziakar.
Faibile was appreciative of the tour.
“We will therefore give our full support to local businesses which are bent on succeeding in both downstream and upstream sector in this all important oil and gas industry,” he says.
