    President John Mahama and his Ivorian counter, Allasane Ouattara have met in Geneva Sunday May 10, 2015 to talk about the ongoing maritime border dispute between Ghana and Ivory Coast, the Bloomberg news has reported.

    The government of Ivory Coast led by President Allasane Ouattara, in November 2011, mapped out a new maritime border it is sharing with Ghana covering some of Ghana’s jubilee oilfields.

    Following that, Ivory Coast made a request to the Hamburg-based International Tribunal of the Law of the Sea (ITLOS), that Ghana should suspend oil exploration and exploitation operations in the disputed area while legal hearings into the dispute go ahead.

    But in April 2015, ITLOS rejected the request that Ghana suspend all ongoing exploration and development operations in the disputed area in which the Tweneboa, Enyenra, and Ntomme (TEN) project is situated until ITLOS gives its decision on the maritime boundary dispute, which is expected in late 2017.

    ITLOS, however, ordered Ghana to suspend new drilling in the disputed area.
