Renergen Completes South African Gas Plant Design
South Africa's Renergen announced on July 28 it has completed the design of the Virginia gas plant, 22 days ahead of schedule.
“This significant achievement marks the completion of the fourth major milestone at the Virginia gas project, as the company works towards commencement of production in 2021,” the company said. The Virginia gas project, 250 km southwest of Johannesburg, will produce both LNG and helium, using gas from local fields. The main customer base for the LNG is expected to be logistics companies operating trucks along the country's main highways.
In February, Renergen agreed to supply LNG to South Africa's Bulk Hauliers International Transport. And in June, Renergen signed a deal with France's Total on joint marketing and distribution of LNG at filling stations. Last week, the company launched South Africa's first auction for LNG supplies.
