14 4. Focus on LP Gas 4.1 What is LP Gas ?
4.2 World LP Gas Production & Consumption 4.3 Incremental LP Gas Supply & Demand Growth 4.4 LP Gas in Africa

15 4.1 What is LPG ? What is LPG ? A mixture of gaseous hydrocarbons, very rich in energy content, easy to store in liquid form at low pressure (contrary to natural gas) It originates from the refining process of crude oil or comes as associated gas in natural gas or crude oil wells Why is it so little known ? Table 1: the weight of LPG in world energy consumption in million Tonnes oil equivalent

16 4.3 Incremental LP Gas Supply & Demand Growth
Sousce: Purvin & Gertz’ presentation World LP Gas Forum Chicago, October 18, 2006

17 5. Using LP Gas for Africa’s Energy Future
5.1 Benefits of LPG 5.2 LPG: tailored for Africa 5.3 Structural Barriers to LPG Development 5.4 Making it work

18 5.1 Benefits of LPG Main benefits Portable and powerful:
high calorific value for the same volume Practical: 6kg cylinders for domestic use, right at the heart of the family Economical: non-perishable, non-degradable Promotion of gas forms an integral part of a strategy which is not only commercial but also social and environmental: Making a cheaper, practical and non-toxic form of energy accessible to even the most modest homes and at the same time helping to combat pollution and deforestation

19 5.2 LPG: “Tailored” for Africa
“Clean”: non-toxic Environmentally-friendly an alternative to wood an efficient way of fighting deforestation “Democratic” beneficial for areas with weak energy infrastructure labour intensive making life easier for women OOG is committed to conducting its business using an approach based on sustainable development, requiring compliance with the most rigorous safety standards and protecting its natural and human, direct and indirect environment in the long term. This General approach is expressed in the high standards it sets in terms of safety and the environment and by the implementation of operational procedures in conformity with international and local regulations. Impact studies and environmental audits of its activities are initiated systematically by all its subsidiaries for each new project. The promotion of domestic gas reflects a deep conviction on the part of the Group’s management and a genuine commitment. The significant effort OOG has invested in organising the right conditions for successfully distributing LPG in Benin, throughout the Sahel and in Tanzania has helped to increase the use of this energy as a substitute for the wood, charcoal and paraffin generally used until now. Through the construction of new infrastructure and its LPG marketing and distribution initiatives, OOG is committed to contributing directly and effectively to combating deforestation and air pollution in these countries.

20 5.3 Structural Barriers to LPG Development
Lack of supply and/or infrastructure terminals and plants Inadequate regulations Cylinder property right Cylinder exchanges and cross-filling practices Lack of standards (cylinders, appliances and filling plants)

21 5.3 Structural Barriers to LPG Development
Limited access for poorer classes cost of cylinder and appliances cost of gas itself Inappropriate taxation import taxes indirect LPG subsidies to “traditional fuels” subsidies: a “curse in disguise” Lack of awareness from government authorities from the public in general

22 5.4 Making it work Supply and infrastructure Role of private sector
Full involvement of investors & distribution companies Capital intensive industry Slow but steady returns Involvement in the whole supply chain Consumer education Support from international institutions Commitment from international institutions Financing collective infrastructures Support for micro-credits Exchange of good practices

23 5.4 Making it work Regulations
developing adequate framework using experience from well established and structured market opting for a cylinder deposit system banning cross-filling establishing a licensing system Access for poorer classes and implication of taxes developing an efficient network financing solutions such as micro-credit eliminate taxation of LPG and cylinders (import duties and VAT) harmonizing the tax system (in case partial taxation is maintained) Support from governments Stability of the political and legal systems Rules governing trade and investment Regulations concerning industry operating and safety standards Involvement in fair tax / duty treatment

24 5.4 Making it work Awareness & Consumer’s Adherence Openness to change
education campaigns (schools, associations, role of village heads) - safety - applications advertising campaigns by marketers

25 Conclusion L.P.G. = Long-term Progress Generator
Access to modern energy is a pre-requisite to economic and social development. Africa with its increasing production of LPG and weak infrastructure has a solution within easy reach. It is only by combining the efforts of all stakeholders (private sector, government bodies, international institutions and public in general) that we will be able to grasp this historic opportunity.
