By: Hilary Vasco Wiagbe

 

MONROVIA, Jan 13 (LINA) -The House of Representatives has disclosed that phase two of the Oil and Gas Reform consultation will shortly get underway in Monrovia.

According to Speaker Alexander Tyler, phase two of the consultation will comprise holding of a roundtable stakeholders meeting and the compilation and harmonization of views and interventions emanating from both phases of the consultations.

The Speaker made the disclosure at programs marking the formal opening of the 3rd Session of the 3rd Sitting of the 53rd Legislature held in the Rotunda of the Capitol Building in Monrovia Monday.

Tyler said the Representatives intend to divide into two distinct bills views gathered from the consultations.

He said one bill will deal with the local content, while the other deals with the management component, including the National Oil Company and the petroleum exploration bills forwarded to the House of Representatives by the Liberian Senate.

He said the bills will be presented at a national conference for the participation of all stakeholders, including political parties, civil society organizations, the Fourth Estate and all interested persons.

Speaker Tyler explained that following the National Conference, the bills will be presented on the House’s floor for discussion, debate and passage into law.

He said the House’s decision to recast the Oil and Gas proposed laws has been informed by feedbacks it got during phase one of the consultations from the rank and file of Liberian citizens across the country.

Meanwhile, Speaker Tyler has described as successful and rewarding the just-ended phase one of the oil and gas reform consultations.
