Ghana will host a pavilion at 2021 African Energy Week (AEW), the African Energy Chamber (AEC) has announced.
The African Energy Week is scheduled to hold in Cape Town, South Africa from November 9 to November 12, later this year.
Led by Minister of Energy, Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh, and a delegation of industry leaders that includes the CEO of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation, Dr K. K. Sarpong, Ghana’s pavilion represents a new exhibition format that emphasizes specific market opportunities and will showcase Ghana’s existing energy developments, upcoming projects, and lucrative investment opportunities.
Specifically, Ghana’s pavilion will highlight the value of Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) as a power generation solution, providing an in-depth view of the current market and the enabling regulation driving progress and expansion.
As one of Africa’s leading natural gas producers, Ghana has demonstrated how, through gas-directed investment and the right policy, the resource can address energy poverty and expand power accessibility on a regional basis.
Specifically, Ghana’s recognition of the value of LNG as a cleaner, more accessible, and increasingly secure energy source has led to the development of large-scale LNG facilities, positioning the country as both a regional power producer and an LNG exporter
In addition to directing investment in the natural gas sector, Ghana’s pavilion will emphasize the various upstream opportunities prevalent in the country and also promote the value of supportive legislation in accelerating energy sector growth and success.
Ghana’s pavilion at AEW 2021 will not only provide valuable insight into the country’s competitive natural gas and oil sectors, but will demonstrate how progressive legislation, market-driven policies, and transparent regulatory frameworks only serve to advance the sector.
