Local content law and practice: The case of the oil and gas industry in Ghana

Charles Ackah and Asaah S. Mohammed

No wp-2018-152, WIDER Working Paper Series from World Institute for Development Economic Research (UNU-WIDER)

Abstract: Local content and local participation policy and legislation have come to stay in Ghana's oil and gas industry. The policy and legislation have been described largely as adequate, promising, and necessary to promote local content and local participation in the oil and gas industry. Implementation of the policy and legislation has, however, produced mixed results, according to industry stakeholders and researchers. Evidence on the ground suggests some level of compliance by international oil companies to implement the policy and legislation on local content.
