Ghana starts fuel exports to West African countries

Oct 7, 2016: Ghana will begin supplying gasoline and gas oil to the landlocked countries of Burkina Faso, Niger and Mali from the Bolgatanga Petroleum Depot. The state-owned Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company (BOST) is also supplying petroleum products from the depot to Benin and Nigeria.

The Minister of Petroleum, Emmanuel Armah-Kofi Buahsaid there were plans to extend the exports to Liberia in the coming months.

Making reference to the President’s State of the Nation Address in 2016, the minister said the vision of the government was to make Ghana the hub for the distribution of petroleum products in the West African sub-region.

The Bolgatanga Petroleum Depot, with a capacity of 46 million litres of refined gasoline and gas oil, was re-inaugurated in August 2015. Gasoline is a transparent, petroleum-derived liquid that is used primarily as a fuel in internal combustion engines. It consists mostly of organic compounds obtained by the fractional distillation of petroleum, enhanced with a variety of additives.
