“South Africa is aiming for a framework of cooperation with Iran regarding crude oil, liquefied natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas, gas and petrochemicals,” Tina Joemat-Pettersson was quoted as saying by Shana during a visit to Tehran. Print Send to Friend 0 “South Africa’s private sector can invest in various parts of Iran’s oil industry,” she added. Mohsen Ghamsari, director of international affairs at the National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC), said on Saturday that South Africa was hoping to import crude oil and other energy products from Iran, state news agency IRNA reported. South Africa bought around 68,000 barrels per day (bpd) of crude from Iran in May 2012.

Last September, Africa’s second-largest crude consumer expressed interest in resuming imports. Iran’s exports of crude have fallen to around 1.1-million barrels a day, from a high of 2.5-million barrels a day in 2012, as Western sanctions have made it difficult to find buyers. Iran is negotiating with world powers to lift sanctions in exchange for more stringent controls on its disputed nuclear programme.

The fields of ENERGY EFFICIENCY AND RENEWABLE ENERGY are converging fast through onsite energy solutions and new clean energy grid offerings. The REIPPP project is underway with billions being invested, transforming SA into a renewable energy leader, but ‘wheeling’ – the process of adding electricity to the grid in one place and taking it out at another, could open the flood gates! As producers gain direct access to end users by wheeling their clean energy through the Eskom grid, the market begins to open up, allowing market forces to push efficiencies up and prices down.
