At the inception of GNPC in 1985, technical assistance was sought from Braspetro, the international subsidiary of the Brazilian National Petroleum Corporation (Petrobras) under UNDP sponsorship for the preparation of a strategic organizational plan and recommendations for institutional capacity building. The organizational plan approved by the Board of Directors involved five main functional divisions and four staff departments.
A review of the structure is currently being undertaken to incorporate a wider scope of activities consistent with our current strategy. The current strength is 175.
GNPC has a seven-member Board of Directors appointed by the Ghana Government which exercises supervisory responsibility over the Corporationís operations.
