West African Gas Pipeline Co. Resumes Deliveries After Repairs

Don't Miss Out —
Follow us on:

July 18 (Bloomberg) -- West African Gas Pipeline Co., which supplies natural gas from Nigeria, resumed deliveries from a pipeline July 12.

“The West African gas pipeline has now been repaired, re-commissioned and back in operation,” Harriet Wereko-Brobby, a company spokeswoman, said in an e-mailed statement today from Accra, Ghana. Force majeure, a legal clause allowing it to miss shipments, was lifted July 11, she said.

The company, known as WAPCo, delivers gas to buyers in Benin, Togo and Ghana. WAPCo on Aug. 28 shut down the link and declared a force majeure after a ship’s anchor damaged it in Togolese waters.

“The company is pursuing measures to forestall a re-occurrence of the pipeline breach incident,” Wereko-Brobby said.

WAPCo is a venture between Chevron Corp., Nigerian National Petroleum Corp., Royal Dutch Shell Plc, Takoradi Power Co., Societe Togolaise de Gaz and Societe BenGaz SA.
