  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Department of Energy is responsible for the development and the implementation of the energy policy and controls the Central Energy Fund, whereas the Department of Mineral Resources (DMR) is responsible for mining policy.

    The Department of...

  • Energy Companies

    Gas:

    PetroSA is the national gas company. It was created in 2002 through the merger of Mossgas, which managed a Gas to Liquids (GTL) plant, and the oil exploration company Soekor.

    PetroSA (55%) and Pioneer Natural Resources (45%, USA) are operating the GTL plant of Mossel Bay...

  • Energy Supply

    Resources:

    Coal reserves are estimated at 10 Gt (10th worldwide end of 2016), and mainly consist of steam coal. Hydrocarbon resources are limited and oil resources are negligible, while conventional gas resources stand at 1 000 bcm (end of 2016). However, the country has potentially huge shale...

  • Energy Prices

    Oil:

    The Department of Energy fixes the oil product prices. The prices of gasoline and diesel follow the trends of international oil prices and have therefore been decreasing since 2013, especially in 2015 (-20% and -26% respectively). These prices are about 20% lower than average EU prices.

    ...

  • Energy Consumption

    Total energy consumption per capita peaked in 2008 at around 3 toe per capita and has been following a decreasing trend since then reaching 2.6 toe in 2016.

    Following the electricity crisis and a peak of 4 500 kWh in 2007, electricity consumption per capita decreased and stands at 3 700 ...

  • Issues & Prospects

    Gas:

    The government seeks to diversify its energy supply mix away from coal and to resort to more gas to meet its energy consumption needs, in particular for power generation. New investments in gas infrastructure are, therefore, considered to allow more gas imports and the development of domestic...
