South Africa in Focus

Second largest economy
South Africa has the second largest economy in Africa and has the highest energy consumption on the continent, accounting for about 30% of total primary energy consumption in Africa.
Key location
Due to the established midstream and downstream activities, South Africa has developed into a key location for many local, regional and multinational oil and gas companies active in the value chain.
Low-risk destination
South Africa, a G20 country, is considered a low-risk investment destination for investors looking for a foothold in Africa.
Government incentives
Through investment incentives and industrial financing interventions, the government actively seeks to encourage commercial activity and attract foreign capital.

“The gas find is so vast that it could sustain South Africa for centuries without any power cuts.”

Jon Foster Pedley, Dean and Director, Henley Business School
