Background: Two tankers carrying some 24,000 tonnes of Libyan oil have arrived at Team harbour in Ghana. The oil is a gift of 500,000 barrels that Libya is sending to help Ghana recover from recent upheavals. The Ghana news agency has reported that Libya and Ghana have begun negotiations for a long-term concessionary contract for oil supplies. The deal between Libyan leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi and the military-led regime of Flight Lieutenant Jerry Rawlings had coincided with a move from Nigeria to insist that Ghana must repay part of the outstanding oil debt of 150 million dollars owed to Nigeria. Nigeria cut deliveries to Ghana at the beginning of February. Reports say Ghana has already repaid some 30 million dollars, and recently agreed to reschedule 100 million dollars in oil debts, with repayments spread over 18 months.
