The Gas Consortium
The Gas Consortium (TGC) was established as a pioneer non-profit organization with a vision to provide effective industry and policy advocacy as well as an inclusive platform for the promotion of the West African sub-region’s gas sector.
Since its inception almost a decade ago, TGC has been recognized by the gas industry in Ghana and select countries in West Africa as a leader in its field. Through its core values which engender knowledge integration, thought leadership, and capacity building, TGC advocates for fruitful public-private sector partnership and industry-specific best practices.
In addition, TGC promotes strategic investments aligned with West Africa’s transformational gas vision. Driven by its extensive sector expertise, TGC’s specific programs have been carefully structured to underscore the inextricable role natural gas plays in the advancement and quest for energy self-sufficiency, unprecedented economic transformation and environmental sustainability.
TGC aims to become a regional gas knowledge hub where partners, policymakers, investors and communities work together to accelerate regional gas availability, security and competitiveness. It envisions a future where gas access and affordability are associated with the improved livelihoods of sustainable communities in Ghana and the West African sub-region.
TGC is led by an Executive Council that oversees the day-to-day running of the organization.
The Advisory Group
Eminent individuals with a wealth of experience in public and private sector leadership roles
Advocacy through stakeholder engagements, sector reports and closed door meetings have positioned TGC as a facilitator of exchanges between players in the industry that result in policy realignments, infrastructure planning input and business strategy reviews.
TGC is associated with the following major gas sector interventions:
Launched and completed in June 2019, this collaborative sector project paved way for the smooth flow of gas from the Aboadze power enclave in the West for use by the various gas offtakers in the Tema-Accra power and industrial enclave in the East
Conceptualization of the reverse flow project
The implementation of the Cash Waterfall and Gas Clearing House mechanisms under the Energy Sector Recovery Programme helped to promote equity and transparency in the disbursement of energy revenues.
Streamlining of gas pricing and payment mechanisms
The case for the development of a natural gas distribution franchise in the Tema industrial enclave highlights the potential for an increased availability of gas for use by various gas users.
Conceptualization of a distribution model for the Tema Enclave
Indigenous Ownership through strategic gas business partnerships
Private sector drive & leadership in design, planning and execution of gas projects
Private-Public stakeholder co-operation to open up priority areas for infrastructure investment.
“TGC’s Gas Partnership Initiative is a first of its kind in the West African sub-region. It is set to mobilize a consortium of visionary gas players that have a mutual understanding around the need to mobilize long-term strategic gas sector investments that catalyze the transformation of West Africa’s economies over the next decades. Gas availability will play a central role in assuring investors of the sub-region’s energy capacity and global competitiveness. We look forward to welcoming our new partners.”
