His drive, innovative streak and perseverance have seen him take proactive steps to ensure readiness for proactively bringing LNG into South Africa to meet the need for energy security rather than wait for a call by government.

DNG Energy is an integrated energy resources and infrastructure company founded by South African entrepreneur Aldworth Mbalati in 2013. The company specialises in the development of liquefied natural gas (LNG) infrastructure and will be bringing LNG to South Africa in 2021, making a cleaner, affordable fuel alternative available to the market. We believe that providing widespread, affordable natural gas has the potential to fundamentally alter South Africa’s socio-economic outlook while also helping in achieving climate change goals.
