The NPA made it clear that the plant is still operational and functioning, with the only problem being a shortage of crude oil, for which the authorities claim they are putting safeguards in place.

The NPA made this announcement at a media event on the processes involved in citing gasoline stations and on the supply and accessibility of petrol in Ghana, which was conducted in Koforidua in the Eastern region.

Dominic Aboagye, the head of planning at the National Petroleum Authority, stated in a presentation that the main goal of his organization is to guarantee the supply of gasoline in the nation. Several procedures have been implemented, he stated, to safeguard the security of fuel supply in the country

When asked about the state of the Tema Oil Refinery, he acknowledged that there were difficulties, but he added that they were too minor to result in a complete shutdown.

David Owusu Kena, the Eastern Regional Manager of the National Petroleum Authority, also addressed the media on the need to refrain from using ramps to overfill gasoline tanks and avoid the accompanying risks.

He also took advantage of the chance to inform the public about the procedures that result in gasoline outlets being cited.
