Abstract
The cessation of Iranian oil supplies to the Republic of South Africa has deprived that country, which has no significant reserves of its own, of its major source of supply. The paper argues that existing reserves and the Republic's capacity to convert to other sources of energy such as synthetic oil and nuclear energy will in the medium and long term allow it to withstand this loss of crude imports. The major impact of Iran's action will be to produce short term manageable stress and to accelerate the conversion efforts mentioned above.
