South African Petroleum Industry Report 2022: Prices and

Dublin, Sept. 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “The South African Petroleum Industry 2022” report has been added to’s offering.

This report focuses on the manufacture of petroleum products from crude oil and natural gas in South Africa, and the wholesale and retail trade of these products.

Information on the manufacture of lubricating oils and greases, primarily from other organic products, as well as the manufacture of other petroleum/synthesised products is also included. There is comprehensive information on the size and state of the sector, import and production statistics, the performance of notable players and relevant developments.

There are profiles of 72 companies including major producers, refiners and retailers Sasol, TotalEnergies, Astron, BP, Engen and Shell, gas companies such as Easigas and lubricants companies such as Fuchs.

High oil and gas prices, which peaked following the February 2022 outbreak of the war in Ukraine, have resulted in oil majors reporting record profits globally, although there is a risk that high prices could lead to a decline in demand. Four of the country’s six refineries have shut down, mainly in response to growing operating costs to meet new regulations such as clean fuels.

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

Price and Demand

The Russia-Ukraine war has propelled oil prices to over US$100 a barrel and sent fuel prices rocketing. Government intervened to temporarily reduce the fuel levy and has proposed deregulating the petrol price. While fuel demand is recovering, fuel sales have yet to recover to pre-pandemic levels. Diesel demand surged, mostly driven by Eskom’s diesel purchases. Prices have been tempered by China’s lockdowns and the release of strategic oil reserves by oil-producing countries.

Refineries Shutting Down

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 product. The only refineries operating are a crude refinery and a synfuels refinery after the biggest crude oil refinery ceased refining at the end of March 2022. One refinery is set to come back online in late 2022. .
