FB_IMG_1495587950526The management of Ghana Gas has denied media reports suggesting that four helicopters it purchased in 2015 are missing. In a statement on Wednesday, the management was emphatic that the four helicopters, and not seven as was reported, “are currently stationed at the Air Force Headquarters at Burma Camp”.

The four Z-9 EH helicopters was commissioned by former President John Dramani Mahama in September 2015 to provide surveillance services to the oil and gas installations in the Western Region.

According to the statement, the helicopters were procured from China National Aero Technology Import and Export Corporation (CATIC). “Ghana Gas does not have the expertise and hangars to operate and maintain the helicopters.

The Ghana Air Force, however, possesses such facilities. “Ghana Gas, therefore, mandated the Ghana Air Force to operate and maintain them on its behalf.

The helicopters are in good working condition and not “broken down” as erroneously reported.” The statement by hte management further noted that contrary to reports, there is a helipad at the Atuabo Main Camp.
