South Africa to decide on new oil refinery this year - energy minister

CAPE TOWN, May 19 (Reuters) - South Africa, a net importer of refined oil products, needs a new refinery and the cabinet is expected to make a firm decision later this year on whether to build a new facility, the new energy minister said on Friday. Mmamoloko Kubayi told parliament that a public-private partnership to develop the new refinery that would be majority owned by South Africa’s government was preferred.
