Other members of the Board are Prof. George Klu, Mr Hayford Kofi Nimoh, Mr Godwin Adagewine, Mr Mabel Apaloo and Dr George Crentsil.

Speaking at the ceremony, the Minister for Trade and Industry, Mr Haruna Iddrisu, called on the new Board to venture into the new area of standards in the oil and gas industry.

Mr Iddrisu urged the Board to liaise with the Ministry of Energy to ensure standards in the measurement of oil produced.
