Session 5 - Unlocking Africa

Chair: Mr Benoit Araman, Oryx Oil South Africa

Unlocking the opportunities for LPG in Africa is one of the biggest challenges facing the industry. Per capita consumption in most African countries is very low. Traditional fuels dominate the domestic energy scene causing environmental damage, social issues and creating health risks. Bad practices are often in evidence where LPG does exist but this inhibits investment and infrastructure is needed to provide more people with access to LPG. How do we solve this conundrum?
