Prior to his appointment George Okley was the director in charge of Upstream at Ghana’s Ministry of Energy.

He, however, resigned in August 2019, after reports surfaced on the issue of contracts at BOST and some serious other challenges he was having with some key staff at BOST, making his work difficult.

Mr. Mensah Okley had over a decade of experience in the country’s upstream sector.

He played a key role in Ghana’s Petroleum Policy Development and Implementation.

He held a Bachelor of Science Degree in Chemical Engineering from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).

He also had a Master’s Degree in Reservoir Evaluation and Management from the Heriot-Watt University, Edinburg, Scotland, with focus on oil field operation, reservoir engineering, reservoir concepts, reservoir sedimentology, formation evaluation, well testing and production, reservoir simulation, rock mechanics with geophysics and modeling.

In 2014, Mr. Mensah Okley undertook a professional course in petroleum engineering at the Imperial College, London. He previously served as a Research Scientific Officer at the Ghana Atomic Energy Commission from 2005 to 2007 and served as petroleum engineer at the Ministry of Energy from 2008 to 2012.

Mr. Mensah Okley was the acting Head of Upstream of the Petroleum Division of the Ministry of Energy from 2013 to 2017, and has equally been involved in monitoring of the implementation of the Offshore Cape Three Points (OCTP). He was a member of the team that developed regulations for the sector.
