Management of Ameri Energy has stated that it had no discussions with government with regards to any new negotiations about the Novation of Ameri BOOT Agreement between Ameri Energy and the government of Ghana.

Government laid a renegotiation agreement on the floor of Parliament in July, 2018 for a renegotiation of the Ameri deal which was originally signed in February, 2015.

A proposal which some energy experts and well meaning Ghanaians believe is a wrong move, and have called for the resignation of the Energy Minister, Boakye Agyarko.

In the supposed renegotiated agreement, government is expected to extend the $510 million deal from its original five years to 15 years with the government committing over $700 million to it.
