PETROLEUM AGENCY SA

ORATION AND PL EX EX P

Petroleum Agency SA encourages investment in the oil and gas sector by assessing South Africa's oil and gas resources, and presenting these opportunities for exploration to oil and gas exploration and production companies. Compliance with all applicable legislation in place to protect the environment is very important, and rights cannot be granted without an approved Environmental Management Plan. Explorers must prove financial and technical ability to meet their commitments in safe-guarding and rehabilitation of the environment. Preparation of Environmental Management Plans requires public consultation and a clear demonstration that valid concerns will be addressed. Petroleum Agency SA, based in Bellville, Cape Town, is responsible for the promotion and regulation of exploration and exploitation of oil and gas (petroleum) resources.
