The National Petroleum Authority (NPA) has been lauded by organisers of the Ghana Energy Awards for its continuous commitment to policy initiatives on digitalisation, aimed at sanitising the petroleum downstream industry.
Dubbed “Excellence in Digital Service Delivery”, the award was 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 were geared towards improving the transportation and safety of petroleum products, as well as curbing fuel adulteration and smuggling in the country.
The event, which was held at the Labadi Beach Hotel, had the Minister of Energy, Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh, as the Special Guest of Honour.
Also present at the event was His Excellency Ex-President John Agyekum Kufuor.
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 award.
