Why South Africa?
The addition of natural gas to Southern Africa’s energy mix has the potential to stimulate economic growth, revitalise energy infrastructure and open up employment opportunities across the region. South Africa in particular is well placed to strengthen its gas economy, with the South African government recently stated that natural gas ‘forms the backbone of regional economic integration among SADC member countries.’
In addition, South Africa was recently named as one of nine African nations to receive $175bn US Government funding as part of a project to support gas production on the continent. This makes it the perfect base to discuss the role of natural gas in the Southern African region.
