Dlamini, Mr MM to ask the Minister of Energy

(1)(a) On what basis was a certain person (name furnished) removed from certain positions (details furnished) and (b) did he consult Cabinet before he took the decision to remove the person from the specified positions; (2) whether the allegations against the specified person were criminal in nature; if so, will he be pressing charges against the specified person?

Reply:

1. (a) Mr Luvo Makasi was removed from his position as Chairperson and Director of CEF following serious allegations against him that were brought to my attention. Upon considering his representations on the said allegations, I then decided to remove him from his responsibilities on the CEF Board. (b) In terms of the Memorandum of Incorporation of CEF, the removal of Directors of the Board is the prerogative of the Minister of Energy. There was no consultation with Cabinet.

2. The allegations were of a serious nature. It would be premature at this stage to go into details about the next course of action.

Ntlangwini, Ms EN to ask the Minister of Energy

Whether any of the companies which are building renewable energy power plants as part of the independent power producing programme have contracted the services of a certain company (name furnished); if so, in each instance, (a) what is the name of each (i) company and (ii) project and (b)(i) what services have been contracted by each and (ii) at what cost?

Reply:

a) (i) and (ii)

Yes, from the informaiton that was submitted, five of the Renewable Independent Power Producers, at the time of financial close, disclosed their intention to enter into a contract for equipment supply with Powertech.

The five projects are as follows:

Project number

Name of Project

RE_OW_0046_003

Golden Valley Wind Project

RE_OW_0046_007

Excelsior Wind Project

RE_PV_0063_012

Zolograph Investments (RF) Pty Ltd

RE_PV_0063_021

RE CAPITAL 2 (RF) PROPRIETARY LIMITED

RE_PV _0083_001

Greefspan PV Power Plant No. 2 (RF) (Pty) Ltd

IPPs bear all the construction, maintenance and operational risk of their projects and therefore the contractual relationship between the main Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) and Operation and Maintenance (O&M) contractors of the IPPs and their sub-contractors and suppliers are strictly on a commercial basis. Consequently, supplier and sub-Contractor information is not included in the Project Agreements with IPPs and therefore the information available to the Department of Energy at this time is received through optional submissions and could change according to commercial requirements of the IPP projects.

b) (i) According to the information provided, the service that was to be procured was for equipment.

(ii) Projects are evaluated on their price of which total project cost is but one contributing factor and not on the detailed breakdown of project cost elements. The Department therefore does not have the cost of the equipment supplied by this company.

Lekota, Mr M to ask the Minister of Energy

What (a) informed the decision to close down the Nuclear Energy Corporation of South Africa’s NTP facility and (b)(i) impact has the closure of the facility had on the availability of nuclear radioisotopes for nuclear medicine purposes in the country and (ii) is being done to rectify the situation?

Reply:

a) The National Nuclear Regulator cited safety concerns at the facility as its reason for issuing a directive to cease operations in NTP’s Radiochemical Production facility. This initially emanated from a situation in October 2017 when maintenance procedures related to calibration and certain safety protocols in the facility were not adequately followed. Hereafter, following a restricted restart of the facility in early 2018, operations ceased again in May 2018 following exceedance of certain technical specifications.

b) (i) NTP Radioisotopes SOC Ltd group of companies through its operation at Pelindaba produces Mo-99 and I-131 as active pharmaceutical ingredients (API’s) as input material to manufacture radiopharmaceutical products such as Tc-99M generators and I-131 capsules to supply almost 100% of the South African nuclear medicine market needs and selective African countries.

NTP mitigated the impact of the API plant closure on the South African nuclear medicine market by importing MO-99 and I-131 from its global supply partners. This strategy was largely successful with the exception of a few weeks during this outage when NTP’s supply partners also experienced short supply situations due to the unavailability of some nuclear reactors in the global network. Selective local nuclear medicine practices imported product directly from international suppliers during this period.

(ii) NECSA/NTP corrected the immediate safety concerns at the facility and put in place initiatives to improve safety culture and behaviour. NTP and NECSA continue to engage with the Regulator to return the facility to its safe, reliable, and full operational capacity.

1. What is the (a) volume in barrels, (b) average cost in dollars per barrel and (c) value of the country’s strategic fuel reserve currently;

Assuming the loan of Strategic Crude Oil Stock in April 2015 and the sale of Strategic Crude Oil Stock in December 2015 and January 2015 did not take place:

(bb) 2017-18 financial years and

  • No Transaction

(ii) since 1 April 2018 and

  • No Transaction

(d) what was the reason for each rotation undertaken in each case?

It will only be possible to provide a comprehensive response to this question once the Forensic Report has been finalised.

Having said the above though it is important to record that the Executives were considering certain actions can be summarised as below:

Financial Reasons

Saldanha Tank Farm was storing the Strategic Crude Oil Stock that was not earning the company rental income because it was Government Stock. This was at a time when the Oil Traders were looking for space (Contango) to store crude oil and SFF wanted to generate revenue and thus SFF was incurring an opportunity cost of about R120 million (10M bbls X $0.10X10 ZAR:$) annually on a conservative basis.

One of the considerations was to loan out the Government stock (With the necessary approvals procured) to any Trader who would keep an equivalent quantity of that Trader’s Crude Oil in the Saldanha Tank Farm so that the Crude Oil Stock of that trader kept in Saldanha would be security for the stock we loaned-out. In this scenario, it was envisaged that SFF would earn a “loan fee” from the Trader on the loaned-out stock and also charge a rental for the stock kept in Saldanha Tank Farm by the Trader.

Operational Reasons

SFF Association is ought to be the lender of last resort in case of a crisis in crude oil supply.

For that reason, it is critical for SFF and the country that at all times that SFF is carrying Strategic Crude Oil Stock that can be processed by the South African Oil Refineries. However in a questionnaire that the company sent out in the year 2014-15 to the country refineries, the refineries that did respond came back indicating that as we suspected that 50% of the Strategic Crude Oil Stock was not compatible with the South African Refining Infrastructure.

Whether his department investigated the legal steps that would be necessary to make its intention possible to set a price ceiling for unleaded fuel; if not, why not; if so, what are the findings?

Reply:

In as far as legal steps are concerned, no investigation was required.

The Department is guided by empowering legislation, and in this case the Petroleum Products Act, 1977 (Act No. 120 of 1977) (as amended) is the appropriate piece of legislation.

Section 2(1)(c) of the Petroleum Products Act, 1977 provides that “The Minister may by regulation or by notice in writing served on any person, whether personally or by post, and any person authorized thereto by the Minister may by such notice so served, prescribe the price, or a maximum or minimum price, or a maximum and minimum price, at which any petroleum product may be sold or bought by any person, and conditions under which the selling or buying of petroleum products other than in accordance with the prescribed, maximum or minimum price may take place”.

This section is the empowering provision that would permit the Minister to set a price ceiling for unleaded fuel after a thorough analysis of the socio-economic impact of doing so has been undertaken.

Whether, with reference to his reply to question 494 on 20 April 2018 in which he indicated that trial runs to commence with the production of isotopes at Pelindaba resumed on 21 February 2018 after its temporary closing on 17 November 2017, full and uninterrupted production of all previously produced isotopes has been restored since then; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details, including dates, production rates and types of isotopes produced; (2) what (a) was the estimated loss of income suffered by a certain company (name furnished) to date because of the interruption in production and (b) effect has the closure had on the (i) customers and (ii) image of the specified company; (3) what (a) were the findings of the investigation commissioned by the board of the specified company regarding the closure of the facility and (b) recommendations and/or decisions flowed from the investigation; (4) whether he has found that the decisions taken by the board and subsequent remedial actions will prevent a reoccurrence of similar unplanned closures; if not, what more needs to be done to achieve certainty regarding future production; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

1. Production of Medical Isotopes did resume in February 2018 with limited runs and stopped in May 2018 following another safety incident.

The plant resumed production in November 2018 and has been producing steadily for local customers and international customers. Both MO-99 and I-131 are produced and dispatched.

Major improvements have been made in maintenance of the old facilities and enhancement of safety culture is ongoing.

(2)(a) NTP Radioisotopes reported a profit of R108 million in 2018 compared to R184 million in 2017. The estimated loss for 2019 is R224 million. NTP is confident it will rebuild market share in 15 months.

(b) NTP Radioisotopes did not lose any customers during this period; however, market share has severely eroded. With the support of international backup supply partners.

(i) Its customers were supplied with product based on the NTP Radioisotopes contracts.

(ii) There is continuous effort to communicate with customers on production status.

(3)(a) The decisions taken by the Board to cease disciplinary processes of Senior Executives and to take them through a counselling process aimed at addressing the mistakes identified, has had a positive impact on the performance of NTP. They also indicated how the challenges were to be managed and committed to reporting periodically to the Board on the progress. Safety and Security is included in the agenda of Board meetings, and the return to service plans highlighted both operational efficiencies and improvement on safety and security standards.

(b) New strategies, plans and systems were developed to strengthen the safety standards and performance of the operations. International and local experts were also allowed to come and assess the operations. In particular, the Regulator played a crucial role in guarding and monitoring to ensure compliance. A culture of heightened safety awareness and performance has been established which will promote sustainability and ongoing growth and development of the company. The Minister of Energy and the Department promoted policy alignment between the various institutions responsible for the cycle of production to enhance compliance.

4. The plant is building on its history of outstanding excellence and performance under the leadership of the outstanding executives. The staff morale is high and the lessons learnt from many months of the shutdown have enhanced focus on both safety and performance. Production levels are increasing and the global market is responding positively.

Consequently, the Department procured an Integrated Information Governance Process Management System.

(ii)The details of services rendered are to develop and implement Integrated

(c) The Department is not involved in the appointment of legal advisers for the different projects and as such does not have the information available. The IPP Office/Department does however appoint its own legal advisers to advise on programme and project issues throughout the life cycle of a programme from design, preparation to implementation.

During the design, preparation and evaluation phases for the procurement of the Renewable IPP Programme Bid Windows 1 to 4 (therefore between 2011 and 2016), the Department and IPP Office was advised by an appointed panel of Legal Transaction Advisors, as follows:

Legal firm

N/A

On average the BEE representation across all four legal firms increased from 44% in BW 1 to an average of 60% in BW 4. Both ENS and Webber Wentzel have a level 2 B-BBBEE Contributor Status and Bowman Gilfillan a Level 3 B-BBBEE Contributor Status.

It is of importance to note that the Department and IPP Office has since initiated a procurement process and appointed a new panel of Transaction Advisors in 2017. This panel include a multi-disciplinary set of advisers including Legal Advisors. The panel also includes a multi-disciplinary panel of Emerging Contractors, which include 8 Emerging Black Legal Firms.

All future REIPPPP design and procurement work will be submitted through the new Transaction Advisor Panel.

Reply:

Question 1:

On 12 December 2012, the Ministerial Determination for the procurement of 2500MW of coal fired plants was published. The Ministerial Determination was issued in terms of the 2010 - 2030 IRP. In line with the Determination, the Department released the Request For Proposals to procure the coal fired plants to the market in December 2014. The process of concluding the procurement process that began in December 2014 will conclude when the 2 projects sign Power Purchase Agreements ("PPAs") with the Buyer.

(a)

(i) Following the procurement process two (2) projects were announced as preferred bidders, namely Thabametsi Power Project (Thabametsi Project); and ACWA Power Khanyisa Thermal Power Project (Khanyisa Project). The 2 projects were awarded a total of 863MW of the 2500MW Determination.

(ii) The sponsor of Thabametsi Power Project is Marubeni Group and the rest of the other shareholders may not be disclosed, as the Department under the RFP committed not to disclose such information about the project. The Sponsor of the Khanyisa Project is ACWA Power, of which the same will apply in disclosing the information in relation to the remaining shareholders as mentioned above.

(b) Government does not provide money to the lPP’s, however lPP’s are required to raise their own capital to build the power plant. In the case of the two projects, they afe expected to faise approximately R40 billion to build the power plant, which will be paid for by the consumer through the tariff, as indicated in Question 2 below.

Question 2:

On the basis of assumed demand, the IRP 2018 indicates that the consumer will pay 1 9 cents/kwh more to the projected tariff of 119 cents/kwh by 2030, which equates to an estimated cumulative amount of R23 billion.

Question 3:

The two projects were procured prior to the release of the 2018 IRP in accofdance with the 2010 IRP. It is anticipated that the two projects will start generating baseload electricity from 2023

1) What are the reasons for his department's determination to proceed with the procurement of electricity from two coal independent power producer (IPP) projects when renewable IPP projects provide more affordable and cleaner alternatives; 2) Whether his department's determination to proceed with the procurement of electricity from two coal IPP projects is based on the 2010-2030 Integrated Resource Plan for Electricity; if not, on which strategic plan is his department's determination based; if so, why is his department relying on an old and outdated plan for future energy needs; 3) In light of the numerous court cases pending against both projects, by what date does his department expect each of the two coal IPP projects to reach (a) commercial and (b) financial close; and 4) whether his department conducted any cost-benefit studies prior to making its decision to procure electricity from the two coal IPP projects, particularly relating to the impact on poor communities that cannot afford to pay for the expensive electricity procured from the two projects; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details of the outcome of the study?

Reply:

1) Government's energy policy, among others, is premised on a balanced energy mix recognizing our country's natural endowment of energy carriers, including coal. Our policy decisions are not informed exclusively by a single consideration, but rather by a variety of key considerations such as affordability, energy efficiency and security of supply, job creation. localisation and commitment to reduce carbon emissions and water usage.

South Africa faces significant rigidity in its economy and therefore any policy-driven transition to a low carbon and climate resilient society must take into account its overriding priority to address poverty and inequality. Government's position therefore should be understood in the context of these and other national circumstances. Thus, in giving effect to a just transition we will pay special attention to workers' jobs and their livelihood.

2) Although the two Coal Independent Power Producers (IPPs) have been procured in terms of a determination based on the 2010 IRP, generation of electricity from a mix of renewable and non-renewable sources, including from coal-fired power stations remains unchanged and thus coalfired power generation and the two Coal IPPs will continue to be relevant. It should be noted that the process of procuring the two coal IPPs was formally initiated in 2014 in accordance with the Integrated Resource Plan promulgated in 2011. The procurement process has been initiated by government at that time and government needs to honor commitments in respect of this procurement process.

3) Environmental approvals secured by the two Coal IPP projects pending the outcome of litigation and a decision on (a) commercial close and {b) financial close will be informed by the state of readiness of the projects.

4) See reply to (1) above. All IPP projects are procured and contracted pursuant to Ministerial Determinations issued by the Minister of Energy, in consultation with the National Energy Regulator of South Africa (NERSA) in terms of Section 34 of the Electricity Regulation Act, No 4 of 2006. Ministerial Determinations are guided by the Integrated Resource Plan (IRP). The development of the Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) is widely consulted and includes, among others, considerations such as carbon emission reduction commitments, cost of new technology uncertainties, water usage, localisation and job creation as well as regional development and integration and security of supply. The multiplicity of considerations and a balanced energy mix of both base load coal fired generation and intermittent renewable power generation allows for blended pricing to address the impact of prices, environmental sustainability and security of supply. It is not a requirement to undertake any additional feasibility studies prior to each Ministerial Determination or each bid window. The Coal IPP Programme was pursued on the grounds of Ministerial Determinations pursuant to section 34 of the Electricity Regulation Act, No. 4 of 2006, that new generation capacity was required and in accordance with the planning framework of the widely consul ted Integrated Resource Plan (IRP).

Furthermore, each IPP participating in the tender process is responsible for undertaking a feasibility study of its own project prior to bid submission to ensure the bankability of the project. At bid submission the IPPs have to comply with various elements within the qualification criteria which can only be complied with if they did undertake feasibility studies

There is no direct or indirect spend by Government or relevant entities exclusively attributable to the Electricity Regulation Act, 2006, Section 34 sanctioned Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Programme (REIPPPP). Regulation 10 of the New Generation Regulations enable Eskom, as the single buyer, to recover all costs in respect of the Section 34 Ministerial Determinations and includes payments for the purchase of electricity from Independent Power Producers (IPP) in terms of a power purchase agreement. Eskom only pays for actual electricity evacuated into the grid at a predetermined fixed price that can only escalate by CPI annually.
