The Petroleum Industry in South Africa:

South Africa's fuel sector, including petrol, diesel, jet fuel, illuminating paraffin, fuel oil, bitumen and liquefied petroleum gas, contributes about 8.5% to the country's GDP while supplying about 18% of its primary energy. Investment in South Africa's aging refineries is necessary to avoid a widening trade deficit for liquid fuels, particularly as half of the country's six refineries currently remain shut.

However, Karoo shale gas reserves and two recent gas discoveries could transform South Africa's reliance on depleting local gas reserves and gas imports.;

Pandemic Effect:

While the petroleum sector was classified as an essential service, allowing fuel stations and refineries to continue operating during the pandemic, falling demand led to refineries shutting temporarily. Petrol sales fell by about 40% and diesel by 34% in 2020 due to a sharp decline in demand.

The pandemic led to the oil price falling to US$37 a barrel for the first time in history. The collapse in fuel demand left many petrol stations struggling.;

Rising Imports:

The downstream refined product market has gradually shifted from a net export market to net imports. South Africa has a trade deficit in petrol and diesel, driven by demand from Eskom's open cycle gas turbines, and demand from strategic sectors. South Africa is expected to become more dependent on fuel imports as the country's six refineries face an uncertain future.;
