Short Project Title: TRONOX MSP LNG BA
Project Title: BA process for the installation of an LNG facility at the Tronox Mineral Separation Plant near Koekenaap, Western Cape
Project Synopsis:

Tronox Mineral Sands (Pty) Ltd (“Tronox”) currently uses paraffin as the fuel source for the dryers at the Mineral Separation Plant (MSP). Tronox has determined that there will not be a secure supply of paraffin in the near future and proposes to introduce Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) as an alternative fuel source for the MSP. Tronox therefore proposes to install five LNG storage tanks, an LNG Regasification Plant and an LNG pump and control station (collectively referred to as “the LNG Facility”) on a portion of vacant land within the MSP operational area and the approved Mining Right Area.

SRK Consulting (South Africa) Pty Ltd (“SRK”) has been appointed to undertake the Basic Assessment (BA) process required in terms of the National Environmental Management Act 107 of 1998, the Atmospheric Emission Licence (AEL) variation application process required in terms of the National Environmental Management: Air Quality Act 39 of 2004 and the approval process required in terms of the Major Hazardous Installation (MHI) Regulations.
