Sapia Congratulates New TNPA Board and Reaffirms Commitment to Ports Transformation.

16 October 2023, Johannesburg –The South African Petroleum Industry Association (SAPIA), the association representing the collective interest of the South African petroleum industry, welcomes the appointment of the inaugural board of directors of Transnet National Port Authority (TNPA).

The South African petroleum industry is a key contributor to the country’s economy and energy security. SAPIA members operate in a highly regulated environment, subject to various legislative and policy frameworks that govern their activities. To that end, SAPIA recognises the vital role that the ports play in ensuring the security of supply, as they are the main gateway for the import of petroleum products and export of other commodities – they need to be efficient, reliable, and competitive to meet the demands of the market.
