The introduction of natural gas into South Africa's mainstream energy supply is an important step in the fulfilment of one of the major objectives of the White Paper on Energy Policy.

The Department of Minerals and Energy has formulated:
The Gas Act 2001, Act 48 of 2001 and the Government / Sasol regulatory agreement referred to in section 36 of the Act, which aims to:
    Promote the orderly development of the piped gas industry;
    Establish a national regulatory framework; and
    Establish a National Gas Regulator as the custodian and enforcer of the national regulatory framework.
   
The Gas Regulator Levies Act 2002, Act 75 of 2002, which provides for the imposition of levies for the functioning of the national gas regulator and for matters connected therewith.
   
Piped Gas Regulations. After the establishment of the National Energy Regulator, the Department of Energy has promulgated the Piped Gas Regulations, 2007, to promote the orderly development of the piped gas industry.
