The Board and Management of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) has thanked the outgoing Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Dr Kofi Kodua Sarpong for his exemplary service to the corporation and the nation as a whole.
In a tweet on Friday April 22, the GNPC said “GNPC wishes to thank Dr. Kofi Koduah Sarpong (Outgoing Chief Executive) for his exemplary service to the Corporation.
“We welcome Mr. Opoku-Ahweneeh Danquah on his appointment as the Ag. Chief Executive, of the Corporation.”
The corporation was established in 1983 to replace the Petroleum Department which was an agency under the then Ministry of Fuel and power.
The department was responsible for the importation of crude oil and petroleum products for the Ghanaian economy.
The mandate for oil exploration was held to be the Technical Directorate of the Ministry of Fuel and Power and the Geological Survey Department.
The corporation was created to promote the Government of Ghana’s objective of supplying adequate and reliable petroleum for the country and the discovery of crude oil in the country’s territories.
