Creamer Media's Energy Roundup is a monthly report providing a synopsis of energy-related news from South Africa. The September 2018 roundup covers activities across South Africa in August, and includes details of the much-anticipated draft updated Integrated Resource Plan, which provides insight into South Africa’s electricity generation plans for the next 12 years; State-owned power utility Eskom’s three-year wage agreement with trade unions the National Union of Mineworkers, the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa and Solidarity; and a study that has been initiated to assess the prospect of converting the Kelvin coal-fired power station, in Gauteng, into a gas-fired power plant.
Price of electricity affects local gas-to-power projects
Published: 27 Jul 18
One of the biggest challenges of implementing gas-to-power projects in South Africa is the volatility of the natural gas price, compared with that of electricity, says consultancy firm WSP Africa generation and power regional director Martin Mkhabela. This volatility is caused by the pricing formula used by most liquefied natural gas (LNG) suppliers, where LNG is indexed to the price of brent crude oil and sold in US dollars, he says.
