The third in a series of morning seminars presented by Nedbank and EE Publishers will be hosted at the Nedbank Main Auditorium, 135 Rivonia Rd, Sandton, on 18 September 2019. The seminar will discuss the establishment of a viable gas energy sector in South Africa.

The series of seminars focuses on infrastructure issues facing the energy and ICT sectors and aims to facilitate meaningful, constructive dialogue on energy and ICT infrastructure initiatives needed to unlock economic and human potential.

They cover issues of a political; economic; environmental; policy; legal; regulatory; planning; investment; business; labour and social nature, are addressed by sectoral leaders, and are followed by open dialogue with the audience.

While the global trade in liquefied natural gas (LNG) continues to grow, southern Africa is showing promising resources of natural gas in countries such as Angola, Namibia and Mozambique, and well as new discoveries off the southern Cape coast.

There is also the potential of shale gas in the Karoo and coal-bed methane gas in South Africa and Botswana, as well as opportunities for biogas, LPG and hydrogen gas production in this country. The morning seminar, which includes breakfast and lunch, will discuss facilitation of a viable gas energy sector from these resources.
