Who we are

We represent the shared interests of companies involved in oil and gas exploration and production in the country. We promote, enhance and facilitate the growth of the industry through networking, education, industry information and advocacy for a favourable business environment. We are aiming to be the primary source of information on the industry.

As the voice of the industry, the Chamber provides advocacy services to its members, and helps them navigate the regulatory framework. The Chamber articulates the industry’s position on government policy for the sector, identifies the issues the industry is concerned with and sensitizes target stakeholders to those issues. We highlight our shared interests with government, and are the focal point for broader social investment and environmental stewardship.


The Ghana Upstream Petroleum Chamber has called on the Chief Executive Officer of the Petroleum Commission and his management team to present a position paper on the relationship between the PC as a regulator and the Upstream Petroleum Companies.

Presenting the paper, the CEO of the Upstream Petroleum Chamber, David Ampofo said “our advocacy is informed first by research work and documentation of the issues at stake. I think there is room for increased collaboration between the PC and our member companies”.
