He said the Takoradi Port will continue to offer the necessary incentives to encourage more companies to be able to service the oil and gas industry. “We are on track in achieving our vision of becoming a dominant oil and gas services hub in West Africa. Since 2007 when oil was discovered in commercial quantities, the port has been strategically supporting not only the domestic oil and gas industry but in the whole of West Africa. In line with that, management decided to lease parts of the port to oil and gas support companies. And so, we have put in place a flexible regime to support any oil and gas industry and other industries to support the economic growth of Ghana.” The design and fabrication of the topside FPSO modules is a major boost in the local content participation requirements of the Petroleum Commission with the attendant revenue flow to local content providers. The project has also provided an avenue for skills transfer and capacity building in a very strategic area of the Oil and Gas sector. By Eric Yaw Adjei|3news.com|Ghana]]>
