Rob Hersov – South Africa’s potential oil and gas prospectivity

South Africa potential oil and gas

South Africa is potentially well endowed with oil and gas. The Petroleum Agency SA (PASA) estimates that the country holds 27 billion barrels (bbls) and 60 trillion cubic feet (tcf) of prospective oil and gas resources on the south, west, and east coasts. The estimate for the onshore exceeds 200 tcf of prospective shale gas resources, biogenic gas, and coal bed methane.

The gas potential outlined above is very significant from a national energy security perspective.
