House No. 28, Naa Shika Lane Haasto


Parliament must not rush through but do a thorough job on the Petroleum Exploration and Production (E&P) Bill and ensure it guarantees open and competitive bidding for oil blocks as well as mandatory disclosure of oil contracts and beneficial owners, Civil Society Organisations have said.

Parliament last week invited memoranda from the public as it considers the long-in-coming law that will govern upstream petroleum activities.

The CSOs have responded by issuing a memo, which calls on the law-making body to among other things ensure the law provides clear conditions under which the sector minister can resort to direct negotiations instead of a public tender.

The Open Society Initiative for West Africa (OSIWA) held a forum last Friday in Accra for its Ghanaian partners to engage them on the various developmental projects that they have embarked upon and the ones which they are currently handling.

The aim of the forum, according to the Law, Justice, and Human Rights Programme Manager of OSIWA, Ms. Afia Asantewaa Asare-Kyei, was to create an opportunity for the partners to have a direct encounter with the OSIWA representatives, and to deliberate on issues concerning their projects in Ghana.

The forum was also to enlighten the OSIWA representatives on the shortcomings (if there were any) of the projects undertaken by their partners, and to find solutions to them.
