Ghana’s petroleum downstream regulator, the National Petroleum Authority (NPA), has been described as the best regulator in Africa.
This is according to Anibor Kragha, Executive Secretary of Africa Refiners and Distributors Association (ARDA).
He noted that NPA had put in place a robust regulatory environment which is evident in Ghana’s downstream petroleum sector.
Anibor Kragha, who is based in Ivory Coast, said this when he paid a courtesy call on the Chief Executive of NPA, Dr Mustapha Abdul-Hamid on Thursday, November 18, 2021.
He commended the NPA for its resilient efforts aimed at sanitizing the downstream industry in Ghana.
“For me, NPA is the premier and best regulatory agency I have seen in the 21st century in terms of technology deployment in creating a level playing field for all operators involved in the sector,” Mr Kragha said.
He thanked the management of NPA for the continuous support to the association and for extending a helping hand to other regulators and players of the industry on the continent.
Dr Abdul-Hamid, on his part, renewed the Authority’s commitment to protecting the industry and consumers by ensuring the right initiatives are implemented for the good of the sector and the country.
He was hopeful the industry’s best years are ahead and reiterated his commitment and that of his staff to run an efficient and results-oriented downstream industry for the gain of their partners and consumers.
