The natural gas revolution in South Africa: A changing energy landscape

Recent on- and off-shore discoveries of globally significant quantities of natural gas in Southern Africa – including trillions of cubic metres of natural gas in the Rovuma Basin off the Mozambique coast, the biggest global find of natural gas in decades – represent a new dawn for the region’s energy landscape.

Natural gas is one of the cleanest, safest, and most useful forms of energy, providing the world with over 20 per cent of its energy requirements across power generation, industry and transport applications. In South Africa, at just three per cent, the meaningful addition of natural gas to the country’s energy mix will rejuvenate an overburdened, out-dated energy infrastructure and reduce cyclical energy shortfalls.
