Refinery in Ghana idle for lack of crude

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Apr. 15
-- Ghana’s 45,000-b/cd Tema refinery has ceased operation because of a lack of crude, according to Reuters.

An Apr. 14 report said the refinery had been unable to operate for about 10 days.

State-owned Tema Oil Refinery Co. Ltd. relies on a contract for purchases by Ghana National Petroleum Corp. from Nigerian National Petroleum Corp. for 30,000 b/d of crude. The rest of the crude it needs comes from purchases by the National Petroleum Authority.

The refinery has a hydroskimming train and a 14,000 b/d resid catalytic cracker.
