Ghana moves to become Hub for rapid oil response
6th April 2012
As Ghanaians wonder about the level of the country’s preparedness for response to oil and oil-related spillage,
environmental experts are already looking at Ghana becoming the hub for rapidly responding to such incidents in the West African sub-region.
Disclosing this to participants on the second day of the three-day Ghana Summit on oil and gas held at the Accra International
Conference Centre (AICC) last week, Mr. Kojo Agbenor-Efunam, Principal Programme Officer (Oil and Gas) of the Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA), said recent industry activities and discoveries in other West African countries such as Liberia and Sierra Leone, have increased risk levels and therefore stakeholders have been discussing the need to pool resources together to tackle oil spillages effectively.
