This document serves as a draft framework for the risk-adjusted strategy to bring different sectors of the economy back to work.
Classification of sector follows the Standard Industrial Classifications (SIC) as published by Statistics South Africa. Where an entire division is permitted, it should be assumed that all subgroupings are permitted as well. Where only certain subgroupings are specifically permitted within a division, it should be assumed that other subgroupings are not.

Dear Members and Stakeholders,
Attached please find the electronic version (Soft Copy) of the TPT tariff book for the period 1 April 2020 to 31 March 2021.
The tariff book will no longer be printed in book form, as the demand for books has dwindled significantly over the past two years, and maybe because of this we can collectively claim ownership of the saving of paper.
The tariff book will also be published on the TPT website for downloading.
Please find attached the Draft Upstream Petroleum Resources Development Bill, could we kindly request your comments of the attached Bill presented on the 28th Jan 2020. All comments are to be in SAOGA’s inbox by COB 19th Feb 2020.
Team SAOGA looks forward to your collective reply,
This letter and enclosed information provides notification of the commencement of a seismic survey off the
South-West Coast of South Africa.
Notice is hereby given in terms of the approved Environmental Management Programme (EMPr) that Anadarko
South Africa (Pty) Ltd (Anadarko) is proposing to commence with a three-dimensional (3D) seismic survey within
Petroleum Licence Block 5/6/7 off the South-West Coast of South Africa on 01 January 2020. Petroleum Geo-
Gas is a desirable and integral part of South Africa’s future energy mix, but the country’s significant reliance on coal is not going to dissipate with the “flick of a switch”, says industry body South African Oil and Gas Alliance (SAOGA)
Executive Director Niall Kramer.
Please find attached information and notification of the commencement of an offshore Seismic Campaign over Block 11B/12B, off the South Coast of South Africa.
The surveys are estimated to start in the beginning of December 2019 and may last until May 2020 at the latest. The details of the vessels and the acquisition location maps are provided in the attached document.
Should you have any further queries on this subject or require any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact us on the below contact details.
'Moenie selfde foute begaan as met Mynbouhandves nie'
Suid Afrika kan of soos Mosambiek ‘n leendige gas-ekonomie skep of sy foute soos met die Mynbouhandves herhaal en die kans verspeel.
The Area 1 Project (previously the ‘Anadarko’ Project) that has achieved FID is now a reality and work on the initial projects to prepare the site in the Afungi Peninsula for the development of the LNG trains and associated projects has begun.
Many of the initial work packages have been issued, but with the need for local content and South Africa’s access through funding from South African DFI’s, there is an excellent opportunity for South African based suppliers to tap into this US$25bn project.
We have tried to make this visit extremely flexible and it should be viewed as one aspect of a broader Mozambique engagement during this week.
The visit will start in Pemba on Sunday 10th November 2019 and companies have the option of departing on the morning of Wednesday 13th November for Johannesburg or for Maputo where they can participate in the 6th Mozambique Gas Summit & Exhibition taking place at the Joaquim Chissano Conference Centre in Maputo on 13 and 14 November 2019.
The government has grand plans to build a gas economy in SA, but as existing reserves dwindle with no new production in sight — could this proposal for a bright future be just a pipe dream?
Minister of mineral resources and energy Gwede Mantashe certainly did not seem to think so as he outlined steps to establish SA’s gas sector, at the African Oil & Power conference last week.
We’re aware that individuals have been posing as SAOGA HR personnel to try to defraud job seekers.
