During a recent visit to Ghana, in the continent of Africa, President of GOGEC, Manniram Prashad, engaged Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Upstream Petroleum Chamber, David Ampofo.
According to a press release from GOGEC, the two bodies signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that aims to provide a framework for cooperation between the two bodies.
