Discovery of oil brightens Ghana's future
Two discoveries in a month promise to go a long way toward solving Ghana's debilitating energy crisis, reports said.

Barely a month ago, substantial oil deposits were discovered in the country's territorial waters and before the excitement died down a second find was announced, the Accra (Ghana) Mail said Thursday.

This latest find announcement comes one day before the sod cutting ceremony for work to commence on the Bui Hydroelectric Project.

Aidan Heavey, chief executive of Tullow Oil, discoverer of the find, told the Mail the discoveries were "a major step forward for the Republic of Ghana and for Tillow and its partnersÂ… and is highly encouraging for our plans to establish commercial production in Ghana."
