Report has emerged from the Volta region of the Republic of Ghana claiming that a well digger who was digging the ground for water has strangely found substance believed to be crude oil in the Nkwanta North Constituency of the Volta Region.

Officials of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation GNPC confirmed to Joy Fm in the capital Accra that they have deployed personnel to the Nkwanta North in the Volta Region to confirm if the liquid substance said to be oozing from the well is truly a crude oil.

Local reporters in the area reported that Residents of the area are already jubilating over their newly discovered fortune which occurred on Friday afternoon.

Jubilant residents were seen shouting loud and spreading the news around the surrounding towns in the constituency.

A man said to be digging a well for water was shocked when an oily substance suspected to be crude oil started gushing out from the ground on Friday the 9th February, 2013.

The Member of Parliament of the Nkwanta-North Constituency John Oti Bless told reporters that he is also convinced that the purported substance is truly crude oil.

“The people have suffered too much, it is a positive signal from God for us as a lot of jobs will be created in this constituency,” the Member of Parliament added.

The Volta region of Ghana is located at the South-Eastern part of the country and borders the Republic of Togo about 150Km from the capital Accra.

At the Cape Three Points Area of the Western Region of Ghana close to the regional capital Sekondi-Takoradi on the 18th of June 2007, Kosmos Energy, Anadarko Petroleum and Tullow Ghana Limited simultaneously announced the discovery of oil in commercial quantities offshore in Ghana.

Kosmos Energy made its announcement in Accra, while Tullow and Anadarko made theirs in London and New York, respectively announcing the new fortunes of the country.

It is estimated that Ghana will produce 105,000 to 115,000 barrels of oil averagely per day in 2013 which is a significant increase from around 45,000 barrels per day it produced when it started drilling oil in 2011.
