GE Oil & Gas' new Takoradi services facility in Ghana is scheduled for completion by the end of August.

GE Oil & Gas Ghana Ltd. is adding to its capacity and capabilities in readiness for the expected expansion as interest picks up in Ghana's offshore oil and gas fields. When the boom arrives, not only will there be robust infrastructure, but there will also be a pipeline of local talent.

General Electric (GE), Global Chairman and CEO Jeff Immelt says the global infrastructure giant is making good on its commitment to improve Ghana’s Energy and Healthcare sectors. The GE Chief Executive said this at Flagstaff House in Accra when he paid a courtesy call to President John Mahama. The meeting was a follow up from the US-Africa Leaders’ Summit in Washington D.C. in August 2014 where GE revealed its vision to make Ghana a major hub for its power business in Africa, and a key driver of its ventures in oil and gas and healthcare.
