The government of Ghana is setting up an industrial estate in the west of the country that will exploit local gas feedstock, President Nana Akufo-Addo has said at a summit in London.

Ghana’s government portal reports the president stating the country’s nascent oil and gas industry would be used for domestic power purposes as well to develop a petrochemicals sector, which the industrial estate is set be a part of.
