The next opportunity
As one of Africa's most developed economies, South Africa has a successful track record of initiating an IPP Programme for renewable energy to complement its largely coal-dominated energy mix. 
The introduction of natural gas is a natural progression for the country that could help diversify the energy mix, transform the country’s infrastructure and create jobs. The Industrial Policy Action Plan set out by South Africa’s Department for Trade & Industry (DTI) emphasises the industrial and economic benefits of natural gas, highlighting the development of the gas sector as a critical project.
How can natural gas play a greater role in South Africa’s energy mix?
With investor confidence high and a strong regulatory framework is in place, what are the next steps in South Africa’s journey to becoming a commercial gas hub? Where do the real opportunities lie for investors? And what timelines is Government working towards?
Topics will include:
• The Global Gas Outlook for Africa
• Modelling a Gas Economy: Case Studies for South Africa
• Significance of South Africa’s Gas Market in the SADC
• South Africa’s Gas to Power Programme
• The Cost of Diving into Downstream
• The Local Opportunities from South Africa’s Gas Market
• Accelerating Gas Infrastructure
• KZN Black Industrialists Programme – Preparing for Success
Watch the panel discussion on South Africa's Gas Economy from the Africa Energy Forum 2017:
The legacy of the South Africa: Gas Options meeting
This meeting follows on from the hugely successful South Africa: Gas Options (SAGO) conference which ran in 2015 & 2016. SAGO followed the journey of the South African government's launch of their Gas IPP Programme, culminating in the onsite release of the Project Information Memorandum outlined by the IPP Office and Department of Energy.

IGCS Site Visit

We've organised a  complimentary site visit to the Avon Power Plant for delegates attending the International Gas Cooperation Summit
Kindly hosted by sponsor Ansaldo Energia
The plant is South Africa’s first large Independent Power Project with a capacity of 685MW - a joint venture (JV) between partners France’s Engie, South Africa’s Legend Power Solutions, Japan’s Mitsui & Co and The Peaker Trust.
A consortium led by the Italian engineering and construction company Ansaldo Energia was responsible for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) as well as commissioning and tests of both AVON project and the separate 370MW DEDISA project in Port Elizabeth.
Ansaldo Energia’s scope of supply, for the two Projects, included engineering, supply, installation and commissioning of the power island (Ansaldo Energia’s own AE94.2 gas turbines, electrical generators and relevant auxiliaries), site installation and civil works.
Trip details
The site visit will take place after lunch on Wednesday 11th October, leaving around 13:30pm. The visit is expected to last approximately 4 hours including travel time. This trip has a maximum capacity of 30 places. These will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis.
