Abstract

he Ghanaian economy is one of the most successful of Sub- Saharan Africa. Over the last two decades it has undergone a process of structural change with shifts from agricultural activities to services.

The power sector is not the only sector in which natural gas could play a pivotal role. The financial resources dedicated to imported oil could be directed towards investments in generation capacity, while the emission profile of the country would also stand to gain.
