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 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 Secretary to the Economic Management Team, Prof. Joe Amoako-Tuffour in the Vice President’s office at Jubilee House. The team was led by Mr. Joe Mensah, Senior Vice President & Head of Kosmos Energy Ghana, Chairman of the Council of the Chamber, Mr David Ampofo, CEO of the Chamber and Mrs. Kadijah Amoah, Country Director of Aker Energy Ghana Limited and Council Member of the Chamber.

They exchanged ideas with Prof Joe Amoako-Tuffour on ways of addressing the present challenges facing the oil and gas sector. The sector has been hard hit following a near collapse of the price of crude oil which occurred after the outbreak of the COVID 19 pandemic, and its hugely negative impact on global supply chains and businesses, resulting in what has come to be known as “the new normal”.
