The development of national gas resources in Ghana is a priority to improve access to energy and stimulate more income for the country. To implement the Offshore Cape Three Points (OCTP) project and build the land-based reception systems for gas from the Sankofa field, we have obtained land grants in the communities of Sanzule and others in neighbouring areas in the Western Region of Ghana. The acquired area, which is approximately 96 hectares, has directly or indirectly affected 205 households who used that land for their livelihoods.
In 2022, the level of production was 32,000 boe/day, supplied by the Sankofa field in the OCTP operated permit. The OCTP is the only deepwater non-associated gas development project entirely dedicated to the domestic market in Sub-Saharan Africa. It will ensure reliable supplies of gas to Ghana, equivalent to 65% of requirements, at a competitive price, giving a substantial contribution to access to energy and the economic development of the country.
The project was developed in accordance with the most stringent environmental requirements, zero gas flaring and reinjection of the water produced and associated gas. Work performed during the year focused on the optimisation of production and maintenance.
