The position has since changed. See our newsflash dated 6 April 2022, available here.
We draw your attention to an announcement by the South African Safety Authority (SAMSA) on 1 February 2022 in relation to the licence application process for offshore bunkering and STS operations. The details appear in Marine Notice MN 01-22 and can be accessed here.
By way of background, the latest announcement follows a statement by SAMSA on 31 January 2022 (available here) lifting the moratorium on the awarding of bunkering licenses in Algoa Bay which comes into effect on 1 April 2022.
