The International Gas Co-operation Summit (IGCS), to be held in October, aims to explore South Africa’s aspirations to build an energy hub for gas co-operation with international partners. Bringing together decision makers in the industry, the event will evaluate how South Africa can become an energy hub to support industrial development across the region.

International Gas Co operation Summit announcedThe IGCS will showcase gas procurement and utilisation projects and strategies, and will allow government and public sector representatives to network with gas developers, institutional investors and technology providers to explore how natural gas can play a greater role in South Africa’s energy mix and support the industrial and economic development goals of the country. The agenda will focus on the global gas outlook for Southern Africa, case studies on modelling a gas economy, South Africa’s gas market in the context of the SADC region, how to accelerate gas infrastructure and the cost of diving into downstream.

“When we launched IGCS at the South Africa: Gas Options meeting last year in Cape Town, we knew that the landscape was changing and the discussion going forward would be broader to incorporate the DTI’s gas utilisation programme. We’re therefore delighted to have got the timing of this meeting right - there is so much interest not only in the gas for power programme, but the massive infrastructure and energy projects happening as a result of those anchor discussions,” says EnergyNet’s Anna Gorzkowska.

“The conversation in October is also not squarely about South Africa, but its relationship with international partners and Southern Africa’s ability to develop gas based projects to electrify and empower the region. Similarities must be drawn with the UAE 20 years ago and how they leveraged gas as the foundation of their now unimaginably rich economies. We’re looking forward to taking this discussion to the next level with our partners.”

A special conference for the Black Industrialists Programme will take place alongside the broader IGCS event. This conference will draw on partners from the last two Gas Options meetings to continue to support the objectives of international and national investors.

The IGCS will be held in Durban, at the Southern Sun Elangeni Maharani, from 9-11 October. Registration can be completed at IGCS-SA.com.
