This online roundtable looks at gas and LNG options for commercial and industrial (C&I) and large off-grid offtakers, midstream challenges, and the potential future impact of large-scale LNG developments in African markets such as Senegal, Mozambique, Tanzania and Nigeria.
Gas-to-power (GTP) is an increasingly preferred option for many large C&I offtakers – including those for whom grid supply is unreliable or insufficient.
Developers are also starting to look at hybridising extant thermal plants, using GTP capacity to underpin the addition of renewable C&I plants.
LNG-to-power developments are also an increasingly viable option, with remote or off-grid locations supplied via ‘virtual’ LNG pipelines using road or even rail. Offtakers include miners energy-intensive industries, such as smelters and cement manufacturers.
The roundtable will be chaired by African Energy deputy editor Marc Howard, with contributions from invited guests and participants.
