High oil and gas prices, which peaked after the outbreak of war in Ukraine in February 2022, led oil majors to report record profits globally, although there is a risk that prices could rise. high lead to lower demand. Four of the country’s six refineries have closed, mainly in response to increased operating costs to comply with new regulations such as clean fuels.

However, shale gas reserves in the Karoo, two recent discoveries of local gas and two new discoveries in Namibia could transform South Africa’s reliance on depleted local gas reserves and imports gas.

Price and demand

The Russian-Ukrainian war has boosted oil prices to over US$100 a barrel and sent fuel prices skyrocketing. The government intervened to temporarily reduce the fuel tax and proposed to deregulate the price of gasoline. While fuel demand is recovering, fuel sales have yet to return to pre-pandemic levels. Diesel demand has surged, mainly due to Eskom’s diesel purchases. Prices were tempered by China’s lockdowns and the release of strategic oil reserves by oil-producing countries.

Closure of refineries

South Africa is refining less crude oil and only two refineries remain operational as it has become increasingly expensive to operate refineries and more affordable to import refined products. The only refineries in operation are a crude oil refinery and a synfuels refinery after the largest crude oil refinery ceased refining at the end of March 2022. One refinery is expected to return to service at the end of 2022. .
