At IPES, we know that the widespread use of oil and natural gas can help advance the energy revolution in a practical way. With significant international experience, our team ensures that we remain at the forefront of all developments in the global energy market.

Having been involved in the natural gas conversion in South Africa in 2001, our team has the expertise to deliver a broad spectrum of technical solutions and provide strategic advice on all aspects of the oil and gas industry.

We specialise in the production of many of these gases:

  • Oil
  • Compressed Natural Gas (CNG),
  • Liquified Natural Gas (LNG)
  • Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG)
  • Hydrogen


We perform regular inspections and maintenance to minimise costly unplanned downtime. To aid clients in their efforts to maintain their installations and remain in compliance with all applicable SANS and Occupational Health and Safety codes, we conduct triannual and annual compliance audits in the form of close, visual, and detailed inspections of both new and existing equipment. If unanticipated failures arise on site, we will draw upon our extensive knowledge and experience to assist with any documentation, maintenance, or repair work.

  • Site supervision
  • Quality assurance
  • Quality control
  • Factory Acceptance Tests (FAT)
  • Site Acceptance Tests (SAT)


We’ll help you migrate your system in phases to minimise disruption and limit downtime, while managing costs effectively. Our control systems experts will first assess your needs to produce a design specification that meets your project’s requirements.

  • Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems
  • Radio-based telemetry networks
  • Industrial satellite-based remote monitoring
  • Remote Terminal Unit (RTU) panel layout and design


Our commitment to pioneering projects in the energy and sustainability landscape has helped us become one of the most trusted, reliable, and innovative partners for the development of alternative energy projects. Our team designs and implements electrical, energy-efficient, and renewable energy systems from project inception to commissioning and ongoing management.
