Jump to: navigation, search
Welcome to the Ghana Oil Almanac - the first open source reference for the Ghanaian oil industry.

Learn about how the country came to be known as the "Gold Coast", the beginnings and evolution of Ghana's hydrocarbons and mineral industries and the discovery of the Jubilee Field in 2007 that launched explosive growth in the industry; or find an overview of how the hydrocarbons and mineral sectors in Ghana are being overseen by regulatory bodies.

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