Mr Emmanuel Armah Kofi Buah, Minister of Petroleum, says government has undertaken activities at the upstream and downstream sectors of the oil and gas industry.
He made this known when Mr Olivier Van Parys, Managing Director of Total Petroleum Ghana Ltd (TPGL) and Ada Eze, Total’s Executive Vice President for West Africa, paid a courtesy call on him.
A statement signed by Mr Edward Abambire Bawa, Head, Communications, Ministry of Petroleum, and copied to the GNA, said the meeting was to inform Mr Buah about Ada Eze’s visit to Ghana and also to update him about Total’s activities in the country for 2016.
Mr Buah lauded TPGL for its long term commitment to Ghana and emphasised the importance of Total’s commitment to better energy globally.
TPGL is part of the global Total group, which is the fifth largest publicly-traded integrated international Oil and Gas Company in the world with presence in more than 100 countries.
The company has been operating in Ghana for more than 50 years and has more than 210 service stations across the eastern and southern corridors of Ghana.
Mr Eze and Mr Pary thanked the Minister for the warm reception and assured him that Total would continue to remain a strong force in Ghana’s energy industry. GNA
