In 2015, Kosmos staff in Ghana hosted a 24-person delegation from Senegal – comprised of EITI committee members, parliamentarians, and civil society organizations – who visited Accra to learn about Ghana’s experience embracing transparency in the oil and gas industry. The full-day discussion covered a range of topics, including collaboration between industry, government and civil society, and policy development. In addition, Kosmos was selected as an industry representative to serve on the governing board of the Western Region Coastal Foundation (WRCF), an organization that brings together industry and local communities to coordinate the development activities carried out by these stakeholders and government. Media Editors and journalists are important stakeholders as they regularly write about oil and gas activities in Ghana and shape public understanding. In 2015, we hosted several workshops for editors and journalists to deepen their knowledge of the industry. Held in the Western Region, as well as in Accra, the workshops brought together more than 50 editors and journalists from four different regions and featured presentations by industry specialists and independent subject matter experts from Ghana National Gas Company, the Petroleum Commission, the University of Cape Coast’s Institute of Oil and Gas Studies, and other organizations. The subjects explored in the workshops were based on feedback from earlier engagements with media and also from local journalists who had already participated in oil and gas training programs. Academia In 2015, Kosmos engaged with students and faculty at the University of Mines and Technology at Tarkwa; University of Cape Coast; University of Ghana; the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology; and the Ghana Academy of Arts and Science. We participated in forums at the universities, as well as provided “Kosmos Energy Ghana has come a long way since establishing the Advisory Council. My colleagues and I have consistently given advice on a range of internal and external issues, in their wish to make the right decisions and to take the right steps, in dealing with its diverse Ghanaian stakeholders. Kosmos Energy has become more Ghanaian since then.” SETH KWASI DEI Founder of Leasafric and Blue Skies Ghana Limited; and member of the Kosmos Energy Ghana Advisory Council THE KOSMOS ENERGY ADVISORY COUNCIL Kosmos took an important step in 2014 to demonstrate our long term commitment to Ghana by creating an independent advisory council comprised of respected Ghanaian business leaders who advise the company and serve as a sounding board as we work to support Ghana’s socio-economic needs and management of oil and gas resources. Members of the council were selected based on their business knowledge, diverse points of view, and history of success leading companies in Ghana. By listening to the advice and insights of these business leaders, Kosmos is playing a more active role in helping Ghana develop the full potential of its oil and gas resources to support Ghana’s socioeconomic development. There is natural alignment between Kosmos and Ghana when it comes to creating a well-managed and increasingly productive petroleum sector. In 2015, we hosted several workshops for editors and journalists to deepen their knowledge of the oil and gas industry. 20 20
