About us

Tetra4 is a vertically integrated gas producer operating in South Africa. We hold the first, and currently only, onshore petroleum production license issued by the Department of Mineral Resources (DMR) through the Petroleum Agency of South Africa (PASA).

Tetra4 is a natural gas producer that provides sustainable, clean energy solutions to large-scale users in the Free State mining region. We have thirteen operational wells producing methane-rich natural gas and uniquely occurring helium.

Our business is integrated across the value chain as we capitalise on the upstream, midstream and downstream business opportunities. The natural gas is beneficiated on site, and we provide bespoke energy solutions targeted at the transport, mining and industrial business sectors.

The methane-rich natural gas is a clean substitute for transport fuel, thermal fuel, and power. We supply Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) to CNG converted buses operated by Megabus in the Free State. A compression station is in operation in Virginia, with a delivery range of 300 km. Plans are underway to increase this to a 500 km delivery radius.

A gas stream to Afrox, a member of The Linde Group, will come online in the near future. Afrox will extract the Helium in the gas (2-4% by volume) for supply to local and international markets. Tetra4 has signed a long term take or pay agreement with Linde Global Helium.
