Ongoing Projects

The NetZero Carbon Emission Project (NCEP)

In the NCEP project, NCEL is collaborating with Yinson Production West Africa, the Petroleum Commission, New Mexico Tech, USA and Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS, Malaysia to (1) conduct a comprehensive assessment of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emission in Ghana and harmonize all emission data into a single accessible interactive database and (2) assess the carbon intensity of the local oil and gas industry and propose a plausible mitigation plan to achieve a NetZero industry by 2050.
