POSITIVE IMPACTS Kosmos strongly supports local content initiatives in Ghana and other countries. Where openings exist, we seek to employ suitably qualified people from the places where we work. In 2015, Kosmos achieved a major milestone by employing a 100 percent Ghanaian team. This has been a long- term goal for the company and demonstrates our commitment to local content and employee development. Local Hiring, Employee Development, and Capacity Building We implement personal development plans for our employees aimed at investing in our people, building capability that enables us to promote from within, and enhancing the organization’s performance. We had 43 employees in Ghana at year-end 2015, and 91 percent of these employees received training and development opportunities in 2015. In addition to providing a range of leadership, business skills, and technical training, Kosmos sent Ghanaian employees to Mauritania and Senegal on extended assignments to help train other employees and support our drilling programs there. Total training expenditure in Ghana during 2015 was almost $200,000. Along with building the capability of our own staff, Kosmos also supports the professional development of key partners. In 2015, we developed and conducted a training program on incident investigation that included employees, contractors, and participants from the Petroleum Commission, Environmental Protection Agency, and Ghana National Petroleum Corporation. This joint program provided a rich learning environment as participants shared experiences and lessons from a variety of backgrounds and perspectives. In the community, Kosmos’ capacity building initiatives focused on offering opportunities for young people to develop technology skills. After listening to the interests and needs of communities, Kosmos built two information technology (IT) centers in the Western Region in collaboration with the Ghana Education Service, district assemblies, and traditional councils. The objective is to help community members, particularly young people, develop their IT skills and use the acquired skills for their studies, including passing the Basic Education Certificate Examination. The two technology centers were constructed in the Nzema East Municipality and the Jomoro District, and will serve fourteen local schools. Kosmos had previously equipped the pre- existing technology center in the village of Nsein with equipment to serve a cluster for eight schools. As part of our plan for the sustainability and day-to- day management of the centers, Kosmos is providing training for support staff in 2016.

These centers help young people develop the technology skills needed to pass the Basic Education Certificate Examination. 21 21
