Ghana’s Deputy Energy Minister on Tuesday said that he recognises the need for an energy transition but still strongly believes that gas will be an important source of energy going forward.
In 2007, Ghana discovered oil and began production at the end of 2010. This led to around 14% of economic growth boost the following year.
According to the deputy minister, Ghana was aiming for 100% energy access by 2024 and is working on a nuclear facility.
The finance minister had in July said the country’s state owned petroleum company is seeking to acquire oil assets that will hasten exploration before a transition from fossil fuels reshapes the market.
