The Chief Executive Officer of Dansworld International Services Limited (DISL), an indigenous Ghanaian company, Bernard Ntow Danso has reiterated the call for more indigenous companies to participate in Ghana’s Oil and Gas Industry.
“The Oil and Gas industry needs more local participation in every aspect of it,” he stated.
He argued that the sector is making waves and it is time more indigenous Ghanaian companies enter the industry to ensure the oil money stays within the Ghanaian Economy to support Government’s grand agenda of promoting indigenous Ghanaian businesses.
To qualify as a Ghanaian/indigenous company, the company must have at least 51% of its equity owned by a Ghanaian with 80% executive and senior management positions and 100% non-management and other positions occupied by Ghanaians.
Mr. Ntow Danso made the call when his company received registration permit from the Petroleum Commission to undertake General Consultancy Services and Sanitation services within the petroleum sector.
The registration permit will enable Dansworld to undertake Environmental Management Services like cleaning services, fumigation, Hazardous & Non-Hazardous waste management, and landscaping & garden maintenance services in both the upstream and downstream petroleum sector.
The permit is in line with Ghana’s Petroleum (Local Content and Local Participation) REGULATIONS 2013, (L.I 2204) which allows Ghanaian/indigenous company, to have at least 51% of job opportunities in the oil and gas sector.
Pledging Dansworld’s commitment to quality services for customers in Ghana and beyond, he added that, “The Company has recently undertaken the requirements for ISO certification and should have the full certification by August 2019, as we seek to expand our quality services to other countries”.
DSIL is an Environmental Services Provider with a track record of excellence, having worked in various sectors of the Ghanaian economy and offers the best there is in general cleaning and waste management services across various districts of Ghana.
