CGG Services SAS (CGG) has applied to the Petroleum Agency SA (PASA) for a Reconnaissance Permit to undertake a speculative 3D seismic survey in the Algoa, Gamtoos and Outeniqua Basins off the Southeast Coast of South Africa.  The proposed survey would be up to 3 500 square kms in extent in an area of interest stretching roughly from Gqeberha to a point approximately 120 km southeast of Plettenberg Bay off the Eastern Cape province.  It is anticipated that the proposed survey would take up to 5 months to complete, with the earliest possible commencement date in January 2022.  SLR has been appointed to undertake the required Environmental Management Plan (EMP) process for the application.
