Ghana: Court Halts Work at Gas Facility
A high court in Ghana's western region has ordered the state-run Ghana National Gas Company (Ghana Gas) to stop construction at a gas plant until the government pays land compensation to local chiefs, the company said on Tuesday.
The $650 million plant is designed to process gas from the offshore Jubilee field but completion has been delayed, curbing Ghana's oil production capacity.
Ghana Gas is seeking to lift the order and could still meet its September completion date, a spokesman said.
