This book explores how Ghana has managed its newfound oil wealth and utilised the revenues to drive inclusive economic growth and development after ten years of oil and gas extraction. This is particularly poignant given that some of Ghana’s neighbours and peers that have been producing oil and gas for several decades continue to suffer from the ‘resource curse’ or ‘paradox of plenty syndrome’. Topics covered in the book include upstream licensing and contracting, regulatory regimes and institutional capacity, fiscal regimes, maritime border delimitation, and national oil company operations. Others include social inequities and injustice of Ghana’s oil and gas, fiscal policy and revenue administration, local content, developing gas markets, and the potential impact of the energy transition. The book is a compilation of leading work on petroleum resource management practices in an emerging petroleum-producing country context. Petroleum Resource Management in Africa provides policymakers, industry and academia with a comprehensive distillation and synthesis of the operational context and the lessons learned from ten years of oil and gas in Ghana. At the same time, the findings in this book are articulated into a comprehensive series of core recommendations that serve as an international reference on Africa’s upstream oil and gas industry. It will be of interest to anyone interested in resource and development economics. Theophilus Acheampong is Associate Lecturer and Honorary Research Fellow at the Aberdeen Centre for Research in Energy Economics and Finance (ACREEF), The University of Aberdeen, and also an Associate Lecturer at the Centre for Energy, Petroleum and Mineral Law and Policy (CEPMLP), The University of Dundee.

Thomas Kojo Stephens is a Senior Partner at Stobe Law in Accra, Ghana, and the Head of the Transactional, Oil and Gas Practice, as well as the Consultancy Group of the firm. He is an Advisory Board Member of the International Energy Law Advisory Group (IELAG), a Principal Trainer at the International Energy Law Training and Research Company (IELTRC), and a former Vice-Chairman of Ghana’s Public Interest and Accountability Committee (PIAC), a statutory body with oversight over the use of Ghana’s petroleum revenue.
