DNG Energy is advancing the delivery of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) in South Africa to fast-track the adoption of a cleaner and cheaper fuel alternative in the market.

The environmental, social, and economic benefits that come with the use of LNG include helping South Africa meet its targets in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, driving economic growth, and improving the lives of all citizens.

As a first step in contributing to sustainable development, DNG Energy is championing the use of LNG for the power, gas, marine, and industrial sectors.

As a 100% black-owned entity in Africa, DNG Energy aims to create a pan-African Liquefied Natural Gas supply network. A widescale infrastructure programme will see a US$5 billion investment to bring this affordable energy alternative into the market.

DNG Energy is looking at the LNG value chain from source to consumption holistically with initial development and expansion infrastructure programmes planned for South Africa, Mozambique, and Nigeria.

To position South Africa as a premium LNG bunkering hub in the Southern Hemisphere, DNG Energy commissioned South African Shipyards to build an 8,000 ton LNG barge in the Port of Coega in the Eastern Cape. It is the largest vessel by weight to ever be built on the African continent and will come into service in 2021.
