Sierra Leone Oil Almanac v 0.9

From Oil4All
Jump to: navigation, search
Welcome to the Sierra Leone Oil Almanac - the first open source reference guide to Sierra Leone's oil industry.

Learn about the oil contracts that govern how Sierra Leone's oil revenues are split; the mining law that determines how mining operations are regulated and monitored; and about Sierra Leone's candidacy for the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative, from which the country has been suspended for failing to comply with EITI reporting requirements.

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)
