The Shama Export Processing Zone (Shama EPZ) is another of the Ghana Free Zones Board's (GFZB) land banks. It is located in the Shama Ahanta East Metropolitan area in the Western Region of Ghana. The Shama EPZ is GFZB's dedicated industrial park for the petroleum petrochemical sector.
The Shama enclave is a good and strategic location which covers 3200 acres of sea front land. The Free Zones Board provides investment support in down stream refinery,distribution, transit and supply chain business services including dominant operators in chemical production as well as manufacturing of by-products like plastics and jellies provided they are intended for export. The GFZB also provides support in skills development and capacity building services for employers and employees in the petroleum sector.
The GFZB will provide land for tank farms, storage yards for logistics and haulage contractors, manufacturing of chemical inputs and accessories for the petroleum industry at very competitive prices.
It is the GFZB's intention to sustain its participation in Ghana's oil sector by licensing and monitoring growing businesses in all the downstream and support services segments and the Shama EPZ will serve as the ideal industrial zone for those operations.
