The Centre for National Culture in collaboration with Nubuke Foundation on Saturday opened a three-day exhibition in Tamale to showcase various aspects of Ghana’s oil finding and its effects for the country’s socio-economic development.
The exhibition, dubbed “Jubilee Oil First Exhibition”, showcases captivating photos and text information about how the country’s oil was discovered, explored and developed.
Its objective is to educate the citizenry to understand all there is to know about the oil industry in the country.
Mr Gerhard Mensah, Communications Manager of Tullow Ghana Limited described the country’s oil field as “a world class project” because of its premium quality.
Mr Mensah called on Ghanaians to be cautious about their expectations of the oil industry saying it would not be the panacea in solving all the developmental challenges of the country.
Mr San Nasamu Asabigi, Deputy Northern Regional Minister said government’s plan was to use the oil revenues to invest in the people because human beings were at the centre of any developmental activity.
Mr Asabigi called on all to show keen interest in the developments taking place within the oil industry. He urged all to visit the exhibition centre and learn more about the country’s oil industry.
Ghana formally began production of oil on commercial quantities from her Jubilee Oil Field in December last year, producing 120,000 barrels of crude oil on a daily basis.
The country’s Jubilee Oil Field is operated under a partnership of six companies; Tullow Ghana Limited, Kosmos Energy Ghana HC, Anadarko WCTP Company, Ghana National Petroleum Corporation, EO Group Limited and Sabre Oil and Gas Limited.
