Jump to: navigation, search
Welcome to the Liberia Oil Almanac - the first open source reference guide to the Liberian oil industry.

Learn about the oil contracts that govern how Liberia's oil revenues are split; the 2000 mining law that regulates Liberia's small scale 'artisanal' mining sector, which employs some 30,000 to 45,000 people; and the Liberia Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative which created the first mandatory reporting process for extractive company payments to the government of Liberia.

This is a living document that will continue to expand as articles are added by contributors in Iraq and elsewhere. If you want to make a guide to the extractive industry in your country, see our three-question, two-minute questionnaire or contact us at wikiguides(at)
