Ghana to Boost Oil Management with World Bank Aid

The World Bank is lending USD38 million to help improve the management of Ghana’s oil sector. The project aims to strengthen the Ministry of Energy and the soon-to-be-established petroleum regulatory body in managing and monitoring Ghana’s oil sector.

The project also seeks to support the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science & Technology to enhance petroleum engineering and petrochemical engineering teaching and research capabilities. It will also back vocational training institutions focused on technical skills development for the oil and gas industry.
