Ghana Power Report Q2 2016

BMI View: Current low rainfall levels and gas supply irregularities result in Ghana having a subduedpower generation forecast for 2016. Increased investment into diversifying the power sector and theresignation of the Minister of Power show the Ghanaian government's firm commitment to solving thepower crisis, with strong potential for growth present should rainfall increase and gas supply improve.

Latest Updates And Structural Trends

A Turkish power ship is currently in the port of Tema, connected to the grid and supplying 225megawatts (MW) of electricity to Ghana. The ship is contracted to remain there for 10 years to help withthe electricity shortage. The Ayşegül Sultan is the first of two ships to be dispatched to Ghana as atemporary power solution, with the second ship due to arrive later in 2016.

The Atuabo gas processing plant was shut down for two weeks in January 2016 to undergo maintenance.

A loss of 600MW in generating capacity was forecast, although the Ministry of Power has stated that theVolta River Authority (VRA) had sufficient gas reserves to mitigate the effects of the plant goingoffline.

The decline in hydropower generation has been singled out by the IMF's Mission Chief for Ghana as oneof the main factors for the need to increase electricity tariffs in Ghana, as developing other forms ofpower generation is essentially more expensive.
