GAS master plan to be issued by end of year

Phase 1 of the Gas Utilisation Master Plan (GUMP) report will be published for public comment before the end of 2014, Energy Minister Tina Joemat-Petterssen has told Parliament.

Replying to a question, she explained that the delay in the release of GUMP had been the result of the need to align it with other plans.

GUMP will look at the infrastructure requirements connected opening up the gas market, including which ports will be used for possible import and export, with the Port of Ngqura one of those being considered in terms of what is referred to as the “Big Gas” scenario.

The Minister also revealed that the procurement documents for co-generation projects would be released to the market in the first quarter of 2015. - metrominutes
