The largest open access LPG import and storage facility in Africa has been launched in Saldanha Bay, Western Cape.
The Sunrise Energy terminal will advance the development of the oil and gas sector in the region and the company will enable the import of LPG in large quantities, boost regional energy security and increase downstream competition.
The R1.02 billion facility is a private sector partnership between Mining, Oil and Gas Services and the Industrial Development Corporation.
The facility has a throughput capacity of 200,000 metric tonnes of LPG per annum.
Albertinah Kekana, MOGS executive chairperson, says: ‘Sunrise Energy is a world-class facility that will drive the availability of much needed LPG on an open access basis.’
