The Gas Challenge would take the form of questions and answers, which will deepen the understanding of people in academia, the media and other stakeholders in the gas sector.

Ms. Augustina Asare Osei, Senior Manager for Government Relations reiterated that the Gas Challenge would not only inform Ghanaians about the gas industry, but also correct any misconceptions about the industry.  

The contestants would be given internship opportunities, among other educative tools like a laptop, tablets etc for the winners of the tertiary edition whiles the stakeholder’s participants would be rewarded with a training program to help build their capacity as well as other prizes as part of the package.
