Many of Ghana’s neighbors will be exporting LNG in the next few years, creating multiple opportunities to access nearby supplies and improve the economy of the entire region,” Simonelli added.

GE and Endeavor Energy, co-leaders of the Ghana 1000 project, and their consortium partners Eranove and Sage Petroleum, have in January this year signed an agreement with Excelerate Energy for the gas-to-power project.
