Victoria Supplying Gas to Cameroon's Bassa Power Station

Cameroon-focused Victoria Oil & Gas announced Monday that its subsidiary, Gaz du Cameroun, is now supplying approximately 4.5 million cubic feet of gas per day to gas-powered electricity generators installed at Bassa Power Station.

Following the pipeline connection to Bassa by GDC and the successful installation of the generators by Altaaq, 20 megawatts of power generated is now being fed into the grid. Total GDC gas production has risen from 4.5 mcf per day to approximately 8.5 mcf per day.

Victoria said that Altaaq will now focus on completion of generator installation at the 30MW Logbaba Power Station. The original schedule of having all 50MW online by the end of March has now been pushed back to April due to shipping delays.

Victoria Executive Chairman Kevin Foo commented in a company statement:

"4.5 million cubic feet per day of gas from Logbaba to supply 20MW of power from Bassa to the National Grid is a proud achievement for GDC and an important step forward for Cameroon. Our partners Altaaqa and ENEO deserve hearty congratulations. All companies are now focused on delivering the 30MW from the Logbaba Station."
