Ghana recorded a total of US$ 44, 788, 915 in oil revenue receipts, according to figures from the Ministry of Finance, representing 87 percent drop from the third quarter’s US$341.50 million in oil receipts.

Prices of crude oil in the international market has tumbled to an 11-year record low of $30 per barrel as a result of a supply glut from OPEC and Russia who are pumping at record high.

A total of $28,558,500, (composing of equity financing cost of $26,946,856 and net carried and participating interest of $1,611,644) was transferred to the GNPC.

The GOG on the other hand made $16,230,415 from net receipts from lifting and royalties.

Other petroleum receipts include; $553, 815 in gas receipts, $109,126 in surface rental and $6,713 in PHF income.
