Saltpond Being Decommissioned / Ghana

Ghana’s state-run oil firm, GNPC, has reported that its longest producing field is in the process of being decommissioned.  According to GNPC, the actual process will start after the decommissioning plan has been finalized by a consultant and approved by the Minister of Energy.

GNPC General Manager, Geoscience, Benjamin Kwame Asante, in an interview with Ghana Business & Finance Magazine said that although operations had ceased at the field, there was a skeletal staff maintaining it ahead of the decommissioning, on the sidelines of the just ended 2018 Ghana Gas Forum.

The field is operated by the Saltpond Offshore Producing Company Limited (SOPCL).
