SA's Mossel Bay GTL plant could be out of gas by 2020
The Mossel Bay plant is one of the world’s largest and is operated by PetroSA, a subsidiary of the government’s Central Energy Fund.
CAPE TOWN - PetroSA expects its flagship Mossel Bay gas-to-liquid (GTL) refinery to run out of domestic supplies by the end of next year, a presentation to parliament showed on Tuesday.
“Reserves are close to depletion and are expected to run out by December 2020 and there is still no sustainable techno-economic long-term solution for the gas-to-liquid refinery,” a presentation by the Central Energy Fund said.
Situated on the southern coast of South Africa, the Mossel Bay plant is one of the world’s largest and is operated by state-owned national oil and gas company PetroSA, a subsidiary of the government’s Central Energy Fund.
