Oil and Gas Career fair launched in Accra

Oil and Gas Career fair launched in Accra

The first oil and gas career fair has been launched in Accra. The event is a collaboration between the   Business World, Ghana Oil Club and Hired Capital.

Hundreds of students and graduates were at the Accra International Conference Centre to attend the fair today, with a view to getting some understanding of the industry and how they can pursue their career visions in it.

Speakers at the event included Kofi Esson, Chief of Staff at Tullow Oil and Dr Frimpong, Director of Petroleum at the Ministry of Energy.

The two day fair is intended to address the lack of expertise in the oil sector which has prevented Ghanaians from fully participating in the oil sector, following the discovery and commercial production of oil and gas in the country.

Endorsed  by the Ministry of Energy, the event also has representation from several tertiary institutions including Robert Gordon University, Dundee University, Aberdeen University and Cranfield University.

The Oil and Gas Career Fair is sponsored by Tullow Oil, and supported by GE Oil, Ghana Gas Company and Expro Gulf.

The two-day fair will come to an end on Friday, 22nd February.
