S. Africa to introduce new oil, gas law after 2019 elections

South Africa will introduce new oil and gas laws after elections next year, Mineral Resources Minister Gwede Mantashe said. “We will make sure that it will be one of the first laws to be processed in the new parliament after the elections,” he said in Cape Town on Thursday.

The process of approval of exploration applications will be completed in terms of the current mineral and petroleum law. The oil and gas sector must advance black economic empowerment, especially at the operational level, he said.

The moratorium currently in place for the oil and gas sector will be amended to allow for the processing of applications currently in the department’s system, Mantashe said in an emailed statement.
