Eni South Africa BV (Eni), and Sasol Africa Limited (Sasol) hold an exploration right off the East Coast of South Africa. Eni and Sasol are considering the possibility of conducting an exploration drilling programme in Block ER 236 (12/3/236) to assess the commercial viability of the hydrocarbon reservoir for future development.
The Project requires Environmental Authorisation (EA) from the National Department of Mineral Resources (DMR), through the Petroleum Agency South Africa (PASA). The authorisation would be under the National Environmental Management Act (NEMA) (Act No. 107 of 1998).
To obtain an EA, Eni must undertake an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) process in terms of the NEMA EIA Regulations, 2014. The Department of Mineral Resources (DMR) is the competent authority and has powers to authorise the development or refuse it. Applications must be submitted to PASA. PASA is responsible for evaluating applications, entering into negotiations with applicants and making recommendations to the Minister of Mineral Resources on their acceptability.
This website serves to disseminate Project information as it becomes available. If you have any questions, or wish to register as an interested and affected party, please contact ERM.
The Final Scoping Report for the proposed Exploration Drilling within Block ER236, off the East Coast of South Africa was submitted to the Petroleum Agency South Africa (PASA) for consideration on 08 March 2018.
