The Energy Year Ghana 2022


This report has dozens of interviews many of which are exclusive to the book:

“This is a country where the demand profile around resources is growing significantly. The demographics are very exciting, so we are extremely bullish on Ghana.”

Wissam Al Monthiry, Managing Director, Tullow Oil Ghana

The Energy Year Ghana 2022 highlights Ghana’s strategy to monetise its hydrocarbons resources and capitalise on its socioeconomic stability to become a regional petrochemicals hub and to spread the use of natural gas and LNG – altogether reinforcing the country’s potential as an emerging energy hub in West Africa.

“Using natural gas as the fuel for industrial expansion is going to be the pillar of growth for socioeconomic development in the whole African continent.”

Ben Asante, CEO, Ghana National Gas Company

The Energy Year Ghana 2022 portrays a detailed picture of Ghana’s energy scene under President Nana Akufo-Addo’s renewed administration, focusing on the varied efforts the country is undertaking to enhance its oil and gas production, upgrade its refining capacity and push for an energy transition.

This edition’s Year’s Focus chapter on oil and gas infrastructure includes an infographic detailing the petroleum hub development plans and an editorial focus on the projects, companies and service providers that are setting the groundwork for Ghana’s energy self-sufficiency.

Produced in partnership with the Ministry of Energy, National Petroleum Authority and the Petroleum Commission, this fifth edition of The Energy Year’s Ghana series delivers insight to potential investors on the government’s efforts to push the energy industry forward, providing a clear picture of Ghana’s opportunities at a time when gas is the new oil and the country is driven by its pursuit of the energy transition.
