Pushing gas energy input from 2.6% of country’s mix to 15.7% by 2030, brings into question costs, market feasibility, operational feasibility and a feasibility schedule that dovetails with South Africa’s absolute peak, plateau and decline greenhouse gas emissions trajectory range commitment….
The Department of Mineral Resources and Energy (DMRE) has on Tuesday 14 December 2021, released the Gas Master Plan Basecase report for public inputs.
“The purpose of the basecase report is to establish baseline information for the natural gas sector in South Africa as well as outline the Gas Master Plan roadmap. Such baseline information includes an overview of the gas value chain and regulatory framework. The report also sets the scene for the Gas Master Plan development process.
The Gas Master Plan, once developed, will serve as a policy instrument, providing a roadmap for taking strategic, political and institutional decisions which will guide industry investment planning and coordinated implementation.”
Members of the public and affected stakeholders are invited to provide inputs and/or comments on the basecase report by no later than 31 January 2022.
Written comments can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org
