The South Africa Gas Options
 
3rd - 5th October 2016, The Westin Cape Town hotel 
 
 
Officially endorsed by:                                                 From PIM to RFQ
Last year, South Africa launched its ambitious gas-to-power programme, rolling out a request for information as the government sought accelerated growth to address the current energy crisis facing the country. South Africa over the last 12 months has garnered international interest for the introduction of a standardised gas procurement process.
  • With the impending release of the Project Information Memorandum (PIM) and the subsequent Request for Qualification (RFQ) this year, the 2nd South Africa: Gas Options meeting will focus on the critical steps needed to move from PIM to RFQ to pave the way for the development of South Africa’s gas to power landscape.
     
  • Once again supported by the IPP office and the Department of Energy, this meeting will give participants direct and exclusive access to the stakeholders driving the agenda for the gas to power programme.
     
  • An updated agenda is now available to download for this meeting, focusing on the role of regional cooperation in the gas-to-power programme, an LNG to power masterclass, infrastructure considerations and an update on the Role of the Gas Industrialisation Unit (GIU).
 
What progress has been made?
 
EnergyNet hosted the first South Africa: Gas Options meeting in 2015, with over 300 people attending to hear directly from Minister of Energy Tina Joemat-Pettersson, the IPP Office, and presidential advisers specifically seeking to engage with the private sector on RFI to RFP.
 
The gas-to-power landscape in South Africa has moved even further forward with the recent call for expressions of interest for the appointment of strategic partners to assist state-owned companies in the development of a 600MW gas-fired power plant. This is in addition to the existing determination for the 3,126MW gas-to-power programme for which a PIM will be issued between July and August 2016. The 2nd Annual South Africa: Gas Options meeting will build on the success of last year’s meeting by focusing on a key theme of strengthening regional co-operation in the long-term development of gas to power. Crossborder infrastructure being a core topic for discussion will be vital to the success of the region’s gas-to-power programme.
 
Once again this pioneering event will be supported by the IPP office and the Department of Energy.
 
"It’s exciting that the companies who attended last years meeting have remained in close contact with the government, who continue to absorb knowledge to guarantee this programme is delivered as effectively as the REIPPPP."
Simon Gosling, EnergyNet
