Platinum 2013: A review of South Africa's platinum sector Platinum 2013: A review of South Africa's platinum sector Has PDF
Published: 21 Oct 13
South Africa is the world’s leading platinum producer and accounts for more than 70% of global supply. However, output from the country was put under pressure in 2012, as a series of work stoppages across the western limb of the Bushveld Igneous Complex affected major platinum mining companies, including the world’s three largest platinum miners – Anglo American Platinum, Impala Platinum and Lonmin. These challenges, among others, have persisted in 2013. However, research firm Frost & Sullivan contends that the long-term fundamentals of South Africa’s platinum mining industry remain attractive, despite the challenges facing the sector, although ongoing union strife can potentially reverse the progress made towards resolving the sector’s challenges. Creamer Media’s Platinum 2013 report examines South Africa’s platinum sector business environment, with particular focus on labour activities, safety stoppages and operation closures in the sector in the past 12 months. It also focuses on the main participants, their operations, projects and exploration activities, as well as other platinum miners and explorers in this sector.
Liquid Fuels 2013 Liquid Fuels 2013 Has PDF
Published: 17 Oct 13
South Africa’s demand for liquid fuel products outstrips the country’s capacity to supply such products and the shortfall is being met by importing refined fuel. However, the country has, in recent years, experienced several episodes of localised liquid fuel product shortages. These shortages point to possible refinery weaknesses and shortcomings in the country’s liquid fuels supply chain. In the coming years, the gap between the country’s capacity to produce liquid fuel products and its demand for such products is expected to increase and, without the development of new capacity, South Africa could find itself importing more than 200 000 bbl/d of transportation fuels by 2020. As a result, consideration is being given to the best possible method for meeting the growing fuel supply shortfall. Creamer Media’s 2013 Liquid Fuels report examines South Africa’s liquid fuels market, focusing on the business environment, oil and gas exploration, the country’s feedstock supplies, the development of South Africa’s biofuels industry, fuel pricing, competition in the sector, the logistics of transporting liquid fuels and environmental considerations, with a particular focus on cleaner fuels.

Projects in Progress 2013 (Second Edition) Projects in Progress 2013 (Second Edition) Has PDF
Published: 30 Sep 13
Creamer Media’s second Projects in Progress supplement for 2013 considers some of the major project developments under way, including high-profile energy and transport projects, as well as a few of the lower-profile public and private developments. What remains apparent is that the private-sector pipeline for projects remains especially weak, owing to poor levels of investor confidence. Nevertheless, project activity is continuing across most of the mining subsectors and in some pockets of industry. Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan hit the nail on the head recently when he stressed the need for higher levels of investment into export-oriented projects. Indeed, the expenditure to expand South Africa’s economic infrastructure will not yield the expected growth and development returns, unless it serves to crowd in the productive investments required to make those new assets sweat. It is a disconnect that has to be addressed with some urgency, argues Creamer Media's publishing editor Martin Creamer.
Uranium 2013: A review of the uranium mining industry in Africa Uranium 2013: A review of the uranium mining industry in Africa Has PDF
Published: 20 Sep 13
Despite safety fears and some countries pursuing the phase-out of nuclear energy in favour of renewable-energy sources and coal-fired power generation, 437 nuclear power reactors remained in operation worldwide in 2012. Further, as at July 2013, there were 162 new nuclear power reactors on order or being planned and a further 316 proposed worldwide. This potential nuclear energy expansion will create increased demand for uranium to power these plants. This report examines the global uranium market in the context of demand, supply, pricing and market outlook, with a particular focus on the African uranium market and the mines, projects and exploration that are currently under way on the continent.
