Ghana has set up a commission to determine and demarcate its land and sea boundaries amid fears that Ivory Coast is laying claim to part of its recently discovered offshore oil reserves.
The 14-member Ghana Boundary Commission, chaired by the minister of lands and forestry, Collins Dauda, is the result of legislation pushed through by the government earlier this year following the discovery of commercial quantities of oil in the deep-water Dzata-1 exploration well off Cape Three Points in the Western Region, which Ivory Coast says lies within its border.
