The Director General presented a comprehensive outlook of  the activities of the operations of the Directorate and its mandate which include, the legal frame work and legislation update; the regional geology, strategy system and the technical database. He explained the exploration history, prospectively the overview and the undeveloped discoveries. Mr. Kargbo further elucidated the advances made during 2017 including their recent infrastructure advancements with a national data archive and the drive to increase the GIS capacity building. He said that their work as a team promises all Sierra Leoneans that they will try to regulate and promote petroleum mining expectations.

He also stressed on the need for accountability and credibility in the operations of the Directorate. As an expatriate in the field, he said that he will not circumvent the will and dreams of the country. Sierra Leoneans must exercise patience as oil and gas activities involve huge amounts of money expenditure and the drilling is to be done by scientists.

The Director accepted that even though they have several abnormalities, but they now have a national database. The Sierra Leone Petroleum Directorate operates with peer review or harmonization cross checks. Considering the advances made and the recent infrastructure advancements one could confidently conclude that the Petroleum Directorate is bent on creating history in Sierra Leone.
