Ghana 1000 Gas-to-Power Project
Endeavor is leading the development and owns 60% of Ghana 1000 – making Endeavor the largest shareholder. Endeavor will be responsible for the commercial management of Ghana 1000 as well as the construction management overseeing the EPC contractor.
Ghana 1000 is a multi-phase greenfield gas-to-power project located near Takoradi in the Western Regions of Ghana that will consist of approximately 1,300 MW of combined cycle power generation technology once fully built out and will support Ghana’s burgeoning domestic natural gas industry by purchasing natural gas from the Sankofa gas field from Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC). The project will be built in multiple phases:
- Phase 1a: 375 MW power block with two gas turbines and one steam turbine
- Phase 1b: 375 MW power block with two gas turbines and one steam turbine
- Phase 2: 550 MW power block with three gas turbines and one steam turbine
Phase 1a will be fueled by indigenous gas from the Sankofa field. Additional phases are expected to be fueled by domestic and liquefied natural gas (LNG) supplied by GNPC. The additional phases will utilize purpose-built LNG import infrastructure and a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU).
Ghana 1000 is in an advanced stage of development having completed negotiations and initialed its power purchase agreement with ECG, received PURC approval of its power tariff, secured its site, obtained an approved Environmental and Social Impact Assessment, and is prepared to enter into an EPC contract with a globally reputable firm having completed its EPC tender process.
Ghana 1000 is a transformational project for the Ghanaian power market and economy, as it will add much needed power generation capacity and assist in diversifying Ghana’s current fuel mix through secure, lower-cost LNG supply.
