Cabinet has approved the Petroleum Exploration and Production Bill, and it is expected to be laid before Parliament in the meeting of the House.

This was announced by the Minister of Energy and Petroleum, Emmanuel Armah Kofi-Buah last Monday.

He has therefore entreated civil society organizations and other state actors, to make meaningful contributions to the Bill so that the nation would have holistic legislature that would address emerging issues in the petroleum sector.

The PNDC Laws 84 and 64 do not fully address all the issues in the petroleum industry, hence, the need to come up with new laws that would deal decisively with emerging issues in the sector.

Mr. Buah made these remarks in speech read on his behalf at the opening ceremony of a two-day conference on oil and gas organized by STAR-Ghana in Takoradi.
