Research output: Book/ReportBook


The Public Interest and Accountability Committee (PIAC), a citizens-led statutory body established under Section 51 of Ghana’s Petroleum Revenue Management Act, 2011 (Act 815) as amended by (Act 893) is glad to present this Simplified Guide to Petroleum Revenue Management in Ghana.
The development of this guide was informed by the need to create awareness among the media, traditional rulers, civil society and community-based organisations, donors, partners and the public on the legislative processes concerning the PRMA. This document will be available to all the aforementioned stakeholders as one of the tools to ensure government accountability.
This Simplified Guide provides comprehensive and comprehensible information and infographics about the law (as amended) to equip citizens with knowledge of the PRMA. With enhanced knowledge of the governing framework for the management of petroleum revenues, it is our hope that the public will be in a position to better understand the PRMA and thus demand transparency and accountability from the Government on the judicious use of petroleum revenues.
This will advance the development of Ghana’s oil and gas sector in an effective and efficient manner for the benefit of all citizens. It is our hope that this document together with other public campaigns and efforts, contribute to the development of an oil and gas sector that reflects the desires and aspirations of all Ghanaians.
