Learn from the experiences of other oil countries- Nunoo

Cape Coast, June 1, GNA - Mr Ken Nunoo, Communications Officer of Tullow Oil, has emphasised on the need for the country to learn from the experiences of other oil producing countries to develop the nation. He said for Ghana to maximize the full potential of the oil find there was the need for the people to understand what it entails right from the exploration stage through the processing stage to its end products. Mr Nunoo made the call in Cape Coast at an exhibition mounted by the Jubilee Partners, the operators of Ghana's oil fields in collaboration with the Cape Coast Centre for National Culture. The exhibition patronized mainly by students focused on when oil was first discovered in the country and how it is being lifted at the Jubilee field at Cape Three Point. It was also to encourage people to produce Ghanaian made goods and invest in them both for domestic use and export. Mr Nunoo said the exhibition would be replicated in all district capitals in the country. The Director of the Finance and Administration of the National Commission on Culture, Mr Michael Attipoe stressed that the education on the oil industry be designed to reflect the environmental needs of the country. He urged Tullow and its partners to support environmental programmes to help conserve them for posterity. On display were bi-products of oil which included make-up sets, shoe polish, ropes, kerosene, candle, combs, plates and engine oil.
