The Petroleum Regulatory Agency

We are here to support the president’s new direction agenda which demands that we place high value on professionalism, compliance and transparency to make our downstream industry a compelling place to invest.

My leadership will have a relentless focus on three things. Firstly, we are opening up the market space, and restoring fairness in the industry for all players, which will increase sector efficiency and transparency. Sierra Leone is open for investment and we want to attract investors in our downstream sector.

Secondly, the Government is focusing on initiatives to develop our petroleum industry infrastructure, we are encouraging investors to come to Sierra Leone and look at the possibility of resuscitating our Oil refinery, construction of tank farms across the regions, bulk transportation and retailing this is to enhance petroleum product security and affordability.

The Petroleum Regulatory Agency is a member of the World Petroleum Council (WPC) and The Africa Refinery Association (ARA).

Finally, we want to ensure compliance with our petroleum laws and tax commitments.
