Springfield plans commercial drilling in Ghana
ACCRA, August 27, 2018 – Springfield Oil plans to begin commercial drilling in 2019, local media reported Friday.
Speaking on the sidelines of the Nation-Building Entrepreneurial Forum organised at the University of Ghana Business School, CEO Kevin Okyere said the company aims to begin exploration for hydrocarbons next year to complement the government’s vision of industrialisation.
“We have all the approvals we need at the stage that we are and all approvals that are needed for next year are being worked on at this current moment, so we are looking at bringing on gas and hydrocarbon so this government’s agenda of industrialisation can be enhanced by what we are doing, by bringing the energy resources that are needed,” Okyere told JoyBusiness.
Springfield was awarded West Cape Three Points Block 2 offshore Ghana in 2016.
