Meet with the Ghana Minister of Energy, His Excellency Honourable Matthew Opoku Prempeh

27 September 2022
Venue: TBC

On the morning of 27th September, the Scottish Africa Business Association, in partnership with the Scottish Chambers of Commerce (SCC), is hosting a Ministerial delegation from Ghana in North East Scotland for a series of private meetings to discuss the opportunities for UK based businesses arising from the release of 5 offshore blocks.

The delegation will be led by His Excellency Honourable Matthew Opoku Prempeh, Minister of Energy, and will include Mr Opoku-Ahweneeh Danquah, CEO of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation and Mr Egbert Faibille, CEO of the Petroleum Commission, a number of senior officials and the rights holders to the farm in blocks.

Below is a brief overview of the blocks which will be discussed:
 
•Block 1 – Deep Water Cape Three Points Block, a farm in opportunity to partner with GOIL Offshore Ghana
•Block 2 – Offshore Cape Three Points South, for development
•Block 3 – Shallow Water Cape Three Points, for development
•Block 4 – South West Salt Point Block, for development
•Block 5 – Expanded Shallow Water Tano Block, farm in opportunity to partner with Base Energy Ghana
 
This will be the only promotion of these blocks in the UK and an opportunity to discuss all aspects privately with the decision and policy makers.  SCC invites businesses from Scotland to attend a round table discussion and a 1:1 private meeting with the delegation can be organized immediately after.

Ghana has a vibrant power generation terrain with players from both the public and private sectors.  Reforms in the power sector in the 1980s gradually removed barriers and created a level playing field for the participation of independent power producers in an area which had previously only involved public sector participants.  The Minister is keen to meet with UK operators, energy supply chain companies and those involved in skills and training.

As the Ministry responsible for energy policy formulation, implementation, monitoring and evaluation as well as supervision and co-ordination of Ghana’s energy sector agencies, the country remains committed in working together to realise its mission.

If you would like to attend the briefing and / or organise a 1:1 private meeting with the delegation, please RSVP to Seona Shand (sshand@scottishcahmbers.org.uk).  Please note that places are limited and a waiting list will be in operation.  Once places are confirmed, details of the timings and venue will be issued.
