The Minister for Energy, Ghana, Mr. Boakye Agyarko, has said his country will like to have more gas supply from Nigeria for power generation, The Punch reports.

Agyarko stated this on Tuesday at the Nigerian Annual International Conference and Exhibition organised by the Society of Petroleum Engineers in Lagos, where he was represented by the acting Chief Executive Officer, Petroleum Commission, Ghana, Mr. Theophilus Ahwireng.

He put Ghana’s current oil and gas production at 190,000 barrels a day and 120 million standard cubic feet per day, respectively. He also added that in the last few years Ghana has been connecting the pipeline infrastructure for Jubilee, TEN (Tweneboa, Enyenra and Ntomme) and the Offshore Cape Three Points fields to provide a basis for its security of gas supply.
