AFRO ENERGY: PROPOSED EXPLORATION FOR PETROLEUM ON VARIOUS FARMS IN THE FREE STATE AND MPUMALANGA PROVINCES (12/3/320 ER)

Description:

Afro Energy (Pty) Ltd lodged an application for an Exploration Right (ER) to explore for "Petroleum and Gas" with the Petroleum Agency SA (PASA) in terms of Section 79 of the Minerals and Petroleum Resources Development Act, 2002 (No. 28 of 2002) (MPRDA).  The ER application area is located roughly between the towns of Standerton in the north, Frankfort in the west and Vrede in the east, which falls within portions of both the Free State and Mpumalanga provinces.  The application is for undertaking early-phase petroleum exploration, which is aimed at determining the presence of Coal Bed Methane (CBM) gas resources that could warrant further exploration.  The initial exploration work programme would be restricted to an aeromagnetic survey and the drilling of up to five stratigraphic core boreholes at known locations.  The proposed project requires Environmental Authorisation in terms of the National Environmental Management Act, 1998 (No. 107 of 1998) (NEMA) and SLR has thus been appointed to undertake the required Scoping and Environmental Impact process.
