South Africa Agrees to Process Some Gas, Oil Exploration Licences

Source: Reuters 11/29/2018, Location: Africa

South Africa will relax a moratorium on gas and oil exploration licences implemented earlier this year to allow exploration and production applications already in the system to be granted, a government minister said.

“This amendment will ensure that applications currently in our system are processed and granted,” Mineral Resources Minister Gwede Mantashe told an oil and gas industry meeting.

In June, Mantashe published a notice in the government gazette announcing a restriction on the granting of technical cooperation permits, exploration rights and production rights.

“We can’t delay exploration because we want to accelerate investment,” he said.

Investment in the industry stalled due to regulatory uncertainty and lower crude prices. Companies with offshore acreage and exploration ambitions in South Africa include Total , Eni, Sasol and ExxonMobil.
