The Ghana Oil and Gas Awards remains the largest industry initiative dedicated to championing excellence endorsed by the Ministry of Energy in Partnership with industry stakeholders like the National Petroleum Authority and Ghana Oil and Gas Service Providers Association.
The Ghanaian economy has become increasingly reliant on energy to sustain growth since oil and gas resources present enormous opportunities for economic development.
