Wang Xianghui is working on a new pipeline bringing offshore gas to Takoradi.
She is employed by Sinopec, one of China's biggest oil companies, and the project is part of a $3bn (£1.94bn) loan to Ghana.
A condition of the agreement is that more than half of the goods and services go back to Chinese companies.
The Ghanaian government says the gas project will help end chronic power shortages.
