USTDA Connects U.S. Companies To Natural Gas Opportunities In South Africa
Nov 7, 2017
GreenCape is delighted and grateful to have received a grant from the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) for a feasibility study to assess the market demand, socio-economic impacts, and key risks of a proposed integrated liquefied natural gas (LNG) importation and gas-to-power project in the Western Cape Province of South Africa.
The study will also provide a preferred model for the importation of LNG for gas-to-power electricity generation capacity, as well as for industrial, transportation, commercial, and domestic uses.
"Natural gas has a critical complementary role to renewable energy for power generation in a lowest cost, low carbon, energy future for South Africa. GreenCape is grateful to USTDA for their support in exploring and unlocking these opportunities." - Mike Mulcahy, GreenCape CEO.
GreenCape will competitively select a U.S. firm to complete the study. Businesses interested in submitting proposals for this USTDA-funded feasibility study should visit the Federal Business Opportunities (FBO) website. A link to the FBO announcement is also posted on USTDA's website.
