It's a travesty that the Jubilee fields import salt for operation-Dr. Ankrah

According to  Dr. Ankrah,  Ghana has failed to prioritize the salt industry which is pivotal for the oil and gas industry.

Ghana cannot maximize the full potential of the oil industry without a vibrant salt industry.

This is according to the Chairman of the Institute of  Engineering and Technology Rev. Dr.Engineer E. L Ankrah.

There was a lot of hope when Ghana started oil exploration that sallt industry will be a major beneficiary as Salt is an essential ingredient in the mining  sector.

It however appears that that promise for the salt industry has not materialize.

Dr. Ankra says Ghana's multi- million dollar salt industry is only wasting away.

Dr. Ankra added that salt is a backbone of the oil industry.
