As a pioneering company in the Ghanaian economy, the company will strive to establish itself as a reliable supplier by deploying the best technology and technical management methods to ensure availability of its resources to the service of Ghanaian industry.

Efficiently Meet Ghana's Energy Demand

Through the production of natural gas liquids, the company is uniquely positioned to spawn the development of new petrochemical industries that will utilize its products as feedstock, and thereby expand Ghana's economy.

The company shall strive to use the strictest environmental strategies and safety methods to ensure that its business success is not negatively offset by degradation of the environment or undue risk to personnel. This will be attained through the development of a world-class safety culture that will be imbued in all the ranks of the corporate body and thus ensure the protection of life and the environment within which it operates.

Development of a World Class Workforce

The company will leverage Ghana's traditional strength in academia to develop a highly trained and motivated world class workforce in short order, which will play a pivotal role in accelerating the development of Ghana's economy. This will be achieved through the development and adaption of training programs and the recruitment of experienced Ghanaian professionals to support the company.

Local Content

Investment in Human Capital Our contribution to strengthening a nascent industry Empowerment and inclusion of nationals in the management of the Oil and Gas resources Building up national capacity through training, skills & knowledge transfer and employment within the Industry

Our Strategy

By sourcing local goods and services and engaging local contractors and consultants we continuously provide opportunities for business and enterprise development. Key areas of focus in our local content policy include knowledge transfer, inclusivity and industry training.

Knowledge Transfer

Ghana Gas has engaged the services of AECOM, a specialist Oil and Gas Project Management Company to provide the key technical and managerial support skills needed to accelerate progress towards Commissioning of the project. The group will also focus on creating a Project Management Division of core project staff and strengthening the team through specialist training and skills transfer programs, which should lead to greater efficiency in Project implementation.

Inclusivity & Capacity Building

Ghana Gas is in the initial stages of implementing its wider Capacity Building plan to train over 100 Operations and Maintenance technicians in the key critical skills they need to operate the Gas Processing Plant. 60 of the successful trainees will be employed before the commissioning of the plant and this number is expected to increase once the Project expands into its full operational capacity. An estimated 25% of the trainee positions have been set aside for natives from the host Community in the Western Region.

Education & Training

Ghana Gas has also partnered established training Institutions in the Western Region including, Takoradi Polytechnic and Kikam Technical Institute to provide industry training in Operations and Maintenance (O&M), Gas Processing, Transportation and Welding. This will increase the opportunities for local residents to gain employment in the oil and gas service industry. Based on the success and measurable impact of our training programmes and partnership schemes within the community, we hope to further increase investment into educational and training programs by offering scholarships to gifted students. It is our intention once the project is fully commissioned, to implement a solely local hiring policy.

Our Efforts So Far

Local Consultants have been employed throughout various points of the value chain to provide expertise in the following areas, technical, topographical, geotechnical, geodetic, Environmental Social Impact Assessment and Quality Assurance & Control.
