Ghana’s Sentuo Oil Refinery has pledged to train 12 Guyanese engineers or engineering students. The commitment was made following President Irfaan Ali’s official visit, during which he attended the refinery’s Jan. 26 commissioning. Guyanese engineers are a highly sought-after group in Guyana’s oil and gas sector, given that Guyana’s Local Content Act requires that companies hire locals.

Under the program, Sentuo Oil Refinery will annually train 12 Guyanese engineers or engineering students for six months. This training encompasses technical skills and provides for the participants’ accommodation, transportation, and a stipend during their stay in Ghana. This initiative is facilitated in collaboration with the Ghana Chamber of Commerce Guyana to promote local content in Guyana.

Sentuo, located in the Tema Industrial Area of Ghana, is the product of a joint venture between the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) and the Sentuo Group, a Chinese conglomerate. It can process 200,000 barrels per day (b/d).

Guyana also plans to have a refinery built on its shores. The government intends to identify a developer out of proposals it received for a 30,000 barrels-a-day refinery. The top-ranked contender will be expected to conduct an environmental and social impact assessment at Crab Island, where the refinery would be placed.
