    The objective of the Gas and Oil Capacity Building Project is to improve the public management and regulatory capacity while enhancing transparency; and strengthen local technical skills in Ghana’s emerging oil and gas sector. There are three components to the project. The first component of the project is institutional development and sector management. This component has five sub-components: 1) diverse support to the Ministry of energy and the future regulatory body, including in media and communications; 2) expansion and revamping of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) data repository to safeguard the oil and gas data being generated through exploration and well development; 3) support to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), support to the Ministry of finance and economic planning; and 4) support to the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) secretariat. The second component of the project is education and skills development. This component has two sub-components: a) vocational training support; and b) tertiary education and research support. The third component of the project supports the Project Coordination Unit (PCU) in its role of coordinator and manager of the project. It will enhance the PCU’s capacity for procurement. It is envisaged that the PCU will also be the focal point for capacity building assistance in the petroleum sector provided by other donors in the future.
