The southern Main Karoo Basin is considered to be the most prospective area for shale gas in South Africa, due to the presence of deeply buried, thermally mature black shales. To date, exploration right applications have been received from Shell International, Falcon Oil and Gas in partnership with Chevron, and Bundu Gas.
The parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Mineral Resources had made the call on this May as the government prepares to process applications for shale gas exploration rights in the Karoo Basin, in the Western Cape.
The Upcoming Unconventional Gas Convention Africa 2015, Sept 28-29, Cape Town, South Africa will bring more government bodies from Western Cape onsite.
Miss UGAS Africa 2015, you will miss the whole African Unconventional gas market!
