Gas supply to the Ghana has been cut as a result of the envisaged strike action by oil workers in Nigeria leading to energy crisis in the West African country.

Ghana's electricity generation is expected to be reduced by about 200 megawatts due to the current events in Nigeria.

Nigerian oil workers’ unions at state-owned Nigerian Petroleum Development Co Tuesday said they have begun industrial action to protest the transfer of the operatorship by the government of prolific onshore oil block OML 42, sold by Shell, to an indigenous company.

The strike by the NPDC branches of the white collar Pengassan and its blue-collar counterpart Nupeng to protest the transfer of OML 42 to Neconde Energy, shut down about 100,000 b/d of NPDC’s oil production, union and company sources said.
