Liquid Fuels 2015: A review of South Africa's liquid fuels sector Liquid Fuels 2015: A review of South Africa's liquid fuels sector Has PDF
Published: 22 Sep 15
Investment in South Africa’s liquid fuels industry has, for some time, been constrained by regulatory uncertainty and it seems likely that the uncertain regulatory framework for oil and gas exploration and development is likely to continue causing delays in the development of offshore and unconventional “frontier” projects, particularly in the depressed pricing environment. Creamer Media’s Liquid Fuels 2015 Report examines these issues in the context of South Africa’s business environment; oil and gas exploration; fuel pricing; the development of the country’s biofuels industry; the logistics of transporting liquid fuels; and environmental considerations, with a particular focus on cleaner fuels.

Road and Rail 2015: A review of South Africa's road and rail sectors Road and Rail 2015: A review of South Africa's road and rail sectors Has PDF
Published: 02 Sep 15
South Africa’s road and rail infrastructure is essential to transport goods and people and, therefore, impacts significantly on the economy. The country is investing heavily in improving the state of its road and rail network, as well as its rail infrastructure, as it has been declining for several years. Several multimillion-rand national and provincial road construction and upgrade projects are under way, with others to follow. Creamer Media’s Road and Rail 2015 report examines South Africa’s road and rail transport system, with particular focus on the size and state of the country’s road and rail infrastructure and network, the funding and maintenance of these respective networks, and efforts to move road freight back onto rail.
Defence 2015: A review of South Africa's defence sector Defence 2015: A review of South Africa's defence sector Has PDF
Published: 19 Aug 15
In early June 2015, South Africa’s National Assembly passed the Defence Review, which outlines the country’s long-term defence policy and strategic trajectory. The review indicates that current levels of local defence spending have contributed to the defence force being in a “critical state of decline”. With the local market being an important source of demand for the defence industry, this inadequate spending has impacted on local defence companies. The review proposes modest increases in defence spending, which, if implemented, will halt the current decline in the capabilities of the South African National Defence Force and, subsequently, allow for the rebuilding of the defence force. Such spending will provide support for the local defence industry and contribute to its continued viability. However, as yet, there is no indication that there will be a meaningful increase in defence expenditure. Creamer Media’s Defence 2015 report examines key developments in South Africa’s defence industry, with particular focus on key participants, innovations and diversification in the sector, local and export demand, and the outlook for South Africa’s defence industry in light of current levels of local defence spending.

Coal 2015: A review of South Africa's coal sector Coal 2015: A review of South Africa's coal sector Has PDF
Published: 07 Aug 15
South Africa’s coal industry is the largest in Africa by some margin. It boasts the continent’s largest recoverable coal reserve and coal production base, making it one of the world’s top-ten coal-producing countries. According to the energy group BP’s ‘Statistical Review of World Energy 2015’ report, published in June, South Africa produced 3.8% of the world total of 8.16-billion tonnes of coal in 2014. South Africa’s energy sector remains dominated by coal, despite a growing focus on oil and gas, as well as the introduction of renewable-energy sources, making the country a large consumer of the fossil fuel. State-owned power utility Eskom, which operates 13 coal-fired power stations, is the largest consumer of coal, buying about 50% of the coal produced locally. However, it has been estimated that Eskom could face a 40-million-tonne-a-year to 60-million-tonne-a-year supply shortfall after 2018, owing to increased demand and underinvestment in new mining projects. Creamer Media’s Coal 2015 report examines South Africa’s coal industry with regard to the business environment, key participants in the sector, local demand, export sales and coal logistics, projects being undertaken by the large and smaller participants in the market, as well as various issues affecting the sector, such as industrial action and environmental considerations, among other topics.
