Ghana Summit endorsed by Petroleum Commission

The Ghanaian Petroleum Commission has officially endorsed the Ghana Oil and Gas Summit Conference and Exhibition, which will take place later this month

Responsible for regulation and licensing within the country's petroleum sector, the Petroleum Commission has offered its support to the industry networking and debating platform. In order to operate in Ghana’s petroleum sector, a company has to apply to the Petroleum Commission as stipulated by Act 821, which established the commission.

The Ghana Oil and Gas Summit will be held in Ghanaian capital Accra at the city's International Conference Centre (pictured) from 23-25 April 2013 and will be expected to attract more than 400 delegates.

The Ghana Summit has been recognised by a number of leading industry players as one of the West Africa region's premier oil and gas events, noted for bringing together international and regional experts, key decision makers, contractors and service providers.

Among the key topics to be addressed at this year's conference will be 'Unlocking Growth: Adding Value and Optimising Ghana's Resource Potential', 'Investment Climate: Regulation, Incentives, Partnerships', and 'Strengthening Local Content through Collaboration'.

Upstream challenges and opportunities will also be up for discussion, along with the infrastructural, logistical and operational issues facing the Ghanaian energy sector.
