Durban conference to welcome Mmamoloko Kubayi, South African Minister of Energy to discuss country’s potential to build a strong gas economy

A conference taking place in Durban from 9 to 11 October 2017 is to welcome Mmamoloko Kubayi, South African Minister of Energy for South Africa alongside international partners along the value chain to explore South Africa’s aspirations to build an energy hub for gas co-operation.

The International Gas Co-operation Summit (IGCS) evolves from the ‘South Africa: Gas Options’ meetings held in Cape Town in 2015 and 2016.

This meeting will bring together principal government and public sector, gas developers, institutional investors and technology providers to explore how natural gas can play a greater role in South Africa’s energy mix and support the industrial and economic development goals of the country.

“When we launched IGCS at the South Africa: Gas Options meeting last year in Cape Town, we knew that the landscape was changing and the discussion going forward would be broader to include downstream gas utilisation. We’re therefore delighted to have got the timing of this meeting right – there is still so much interest not only in the gas for power programme, but the massive infrastructure and energy projects happening as a result of those anchor discussions,” comments Anna Gorzkowska, EnergyNet Production Assistant.

New opportunity

IGCS will showcase gas procurement and utilisation projects and strategies, bringing together decision makers who can lay the cornerstone of the region’s success and enable South Africa to become an energy hub to support industrial development across the region.

The agenda will focus on the global gas outlook for Southern Africa, case studies on modelling a gas economy, how to accelerate gas infrastructure and the cost of diving into downstream.

A special conference for the Black Industrialists Programme with its major stakeholders will take place alongside the broader meeting, drawing on partners from the last two Gas Options meetings to continue to support the crucial objectives for both international and national investors.
