France - Minister decides to appeal against the re-instatement of Total permits.

Ségolene Royal has decided that the State will appeal against the recent decision to re-instate the exploration permits originally award to Total.

Essentially, the minister has made this decision in light of the law on energy transition (2015) which sets a target of reducing by 30% the consumption of oil and calls for a 'broad review of hydrocarbon exploration policy.' Mme Royal also reaffirms the 'government's determination to strictly enforce the prohibition of hydraulic fracturing having in mind environmental and public health matters.'
