Ahwireng is a geophysicist and a leader in natural resource governance. He has had extensive and progressive technical, management and business responsibilities across the Upstream Petroleum Industry (UPI) value chain.

He is also a former Chief Executive of the Petroleum Commission – the UPI regulator in Ghana – which also has a mandate for sustainability within the sector. He led the development of key legislation in the UPI, including the Petroleum Commission Act (Act 821), Petroleum Exploration and Production Act (919) and the Petroleum E&P Measurement Regulations (LI2246) and developed and implemented strategies for the Local Content and Local Participation Regulations (LI2204) resulting in significant growth in Indigenous participation in Ghana.

With oil production set to begin in 2020, GOGA has been leading the efforts in Guyana to promote awareness to what is essentially a new industry to the South American country. This lecture represents the 7th of its kind organized by the association.
