Sunbird, Eskom sign MoU on gas supply from Ibhubesi
Upstream operator Sunbird Energy has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Eskom to study the viability of supplying gas from the Ibhubesi field to the 1,300MW Ankerlig power station. “This MoU sets the framework under which Eskom and Sunbird will jointly investigate the development of the Ibhubesi gas project for the delivery of an indigenous gas supply to the energy-constrained west coast of South Africa,” said Sunbird chairman Kerwin Rana. Eskom is keen to convert Ankerlig from diesel to natural gas, and is developing plans to convert the plant from an open cycle to a closed cycle facility.
