PSO John Agyekum Kufuor at Keppel shipyard in Singapore
On Friday the First Lady, Mrs. Rebecca Akufo-Addo launched the Floating Production and-Storage Offloading (FPSO) vessel, John Agyekum Kufuor, in Singapore at the Keppel shipyard.
The vessel named after Former President John Agyekum Kufuor will operate in the Offshore Cape Three Points (OCTP) oilfields in the Western Region.
It is the largest of the three FPSOs in Ghana and the first equipped to exchange both gas and oil on the same platform.
Mrs. Akufo-Addo who was the special guest of honor, praised the former President for his forethought in reforming the oil sector during his administration which led to the finding of oil in commercial quantities, for the first time in Ghana, about ten years.
First Lady said that naming the vessel after former President Kufuor was well-deserved as it showed the appreciation of Ghanaians for his good deeds which turned Ghana around from a Highly Indebted and Poor Country (HIPC) to a lower middle income-earning country in a record time of about six years.
Former President Kufuor expressed his appreciation to Ghanaians for the honour done him and praised the former NDC government led by former President John Mahama for proposing to name the vessel after him.
