The Energy Ministry has rejected reports that it had signed a deal with Genser Energy Ghana Limited.

“The Minister wishes to state emphatically that neither he nor anyone else acting on behalf of the Ministry has signed any contract with Genser.”

This comes after workers of the Ghana National Gas Company (Ghana Gas) expressed disapproval of the Energy Ministry’s alleged deal with Genser Energy Ghana Limited.

They want President Akufo-Addo to halt the much-talked-about gas supply agreement with the energy company.

The deal, the Ministry said is being investigated by the Parliamentary Committee on Mines and Energy.

It added that the Ministry, Petroleum Commission and Energy Commission had investigated the matter and submitted a report to the President.

Under the alleged deal, 50 million standard cubic feet of raw gas will be supplied daily to Genser Energy.

But the Ghana Gas workers believe this agreement will spell doom for the survival of Ghana Gas and negatively affect the government’s vision of building a second gas processing plant.

According to the workers, this is because they are unhappy with how the Minister of Energy, Matthew Opoku Prempeh, handles the concurrent existence of Genser Energy Ghana Limited’s Gas Condition Plant and Ghana Gas’ Gas Processing Plant Train 2.
