musings on our life of travel and volunteering

For the Petroleum Readers

leave a comment »

We know that many of our friends and former colleagues regularly keep up to date with what the Shox are doing in Ghana!  In fact, we are now approaching 3,000 hits on our blog site, which makes us giddy with glee.  So thank you for continuing to share our Ghanaian journey with us!

There is not a day that goes by here in Ghana, when the front page news is not somehow related to the impending windfall from oil production from Ghana’s Jubilee Field, scheduled to commence later this year.  For that reason, we thought we’d provide a wee service to our loyal readers – free of charge – which is some links to recent news articles about the petroleum sector here in Ghana.

Look to the right of this entry at the side bar.  Note the Links reference, with hotlinks below to some recent stories that we thought may be of interest.  Let us know if you are reading these, and if we should keep them up!  Always happy for reader feedback….

To kick start things, we thought this link below gave a good overview of Ghana’s economy at the moment, and the impact that first oil may have:

Ghana News from Reuters – The New African Tiger?

We also wanted to take this opportunity to remind folks that we publish, also on the RHS sidebar – copies of the ADVOCATE articles we publish for RUMNET’s development newspaper, as well as Mar’s Musings on life as a volunteer in Ghana.  Finally – we have been keeping the “random thoughts” updated, so you can always click there for a snapshot on some aspect of life here.

AND – if you scroll down to near the bottom of the RHS, you can find a place where you can sign up for updates on our blog!  Never be caught out again!  An e-mail will be posted to you when any new activity happens in the main blogging space…

What does all of this mean?  Well, don’t just read our main blog!  Head to the right and start clicking!   Enjoy.
