AFRO ENERGY: PROPOSED EXPLORATION FOR PETROLEUM ON VARIOUS FARMS IN THE MPUMALANGA AND KWAZULU-NATAL PROVINCES (12/3/321 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 Ermelo in the northwest, Piet Retief in the northeast and Wakkerstroom in the south, which falls within a portion of the Mpumalanga province.  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 four 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. 

 

 

Client:

Afro Energy (Pty) Ltd

Status:

On 18 November 2016 Afro Energy withdrew the application for the Exploration Right 12/3/321ER.  PASA confirmed receipt of the notice of withdrawal for the ER Application on 23 November 2016.  The application for Environmental Authorisation of the exploration work programme is therefore no longer required and the application was also withdrawn.
