  • Ghana’s new floating Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) terminal at the port of Tema, is set to receive its maiden shipment from Shell in the coming weeks.
  • The Tema LNG terminal is funded by Helios Investment Partners and Africa Infrastructure Investment Managers (AIIM)
  • The terminal, made up of a dedicated floating regasification vessel and a separate LNG storage vessel, has the capacity to import 1.7 million mt/year of LNG.
