The National Petroleum Authority (NPA) has been awarded with Excellence in Digital Service Delivery by the organisers of the Ghana Energy Awards.
This follows the Authority’s continuous commitment to policy initiatives on digitalization, aimed at sanitizing the petroleum downstream industry.
The award is in recognition of the Authority’s deployment of technologies such as the tracking systems for bulk road vehicles and cargoes, the petroleum product marking scheme and the enterprise relational database management system.
These policy initiatives are geared towards improving transportation and safety of petroleum products as well as curbing fuel adulteration and smuggling in the country.
The event was attended by the Minister of Energy, Matthew Opoku Prempeh as the Special Guest of Honour. Also present at the event held at the Labadi Beach Hotel in Accra was Ex President John Agyekum Kufuor among other dignitaries.
The Ghana Energy awards is endorsed by the World Energy Council, with the aim of recognising the achievements, successes, efforts, innovation and excellence of corporate entities and individuals within the Energy Sector.
It also celebrates the tremendous work of players in the industry competing in various categories of the awards.
