S. Africa agrees to process some oil and gas exploration licences

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 on Thursday.

‘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.
