Victoria Oil & Gas (VOG), the parent company of Gaz du Cameroun (GDC), a British company that markets the gas produced on the Logbaba field in the Littoral region of the country, announced on January 5 that it was notified of Eneo’s decision to suspend gas supplies on behalf of the Logbaba plant (50 MW).
The concessionaire of the public utility of electricity in Cameroon was brought to make this decision, one learns in an official communique of VOG, because of the costs and, especially, of its financial difficulties which are consecutive to a debt of approximately 100 billion CFA francs claimed from the state.
From sources internal to the company, the half-masting of the Logbaba gas power plant, following the suspension of gas supplies from GDC, will have no impact on the balance between supply and demand of electricity in Cameroon.
“Logbaba is a temporary source, which is made not to last. This plant was an emergency solution, pending the commissioning of the Lom Pangar and Memve’élé dams. Lom Pangar is already there and can handle the situation, despite a slight drop in the water level recorded in its reservoir in 2017, “says an authorized source.
