“Given the number and calibre of the companies that expressed interest in our maiden oil and gas licensing round, it suffices to say that Ghana’s oil and gas industry is attractive and promising.”
Hon. John Peter Amewu, Minister of Energy
The Oil & Gas Year Ghana 2020 delves into the country’s developments a decade after first oil. This year’s edition covers a range of topics, including the country’s first-ever licensing round, measures aimed at boosting investor confidence, the government’s plans to turn Ghana into a regional logistics and petroleum hub, the increasing role gas is playing in the country’s energy mix and the achievements of the local content law since its enactment in 2013.
“The exciting aspect about this achievement [the Afina-1x well discovery] is that it’s not just for Springfield, but is for the entire continent – to say that Africans can do things and we do them very well once we put our minds to it. We think that this will unleash the potential of Africa.”
Kevin Okyere, Founder and CEO of Springfield Group, TOGY Ghana 2020 Indigenous Company of the Year
Ghana is putting the pieces in place to increase its energy profile on the African continent, such as expanding E&P activities to reach 500,000 bopd by 2024, initiating policies to increase transparency in the awarding of blocks and ultimately creating a regional hub for the hydrocarbons industry.
Produced in partnership with the Ministry of Energy, this fourth edition of The Oil & Gas Year Ghana provides insight to investors and companies looking at strategic opportunities in the country at a time when Ghana’s oil and gas industry is aiming to double production.
