The Department of Mineral Resources and Energy has published the draft Gas Master Plan 2024, and is asking you to comment.

The draft GMP2024 is a policy instrument that seeks to ensure security of gas supply by diversifying supply options from both local and international markets. It outlines the role of natural gas in the context of energy mix and provides policy direction to the industry in South Africa.

The plan considers the complete gas topology ranging from demand, supply, importation, infrastructure, and distribution networks. It recognises the critical role of natural gas in the country’s economy, and anticipates the infrastructure required for the delivery of gas at a point of consumption based on a least-cost model.

Comments can be emailed to Director-General of the Department of Mineral Resources & Energy at [email protected] by no later than Saturday, 15 June 2024.
