PARIS (AFP) -
France is to stop granting new licences for oil and gas exploration on the mainland and in overseas territories, Environment Minister Nicolas Hulot said Friday.
"There will be no new exploration licences for hydrocarbons, we will pass the law this autumn," Hulot said on BFMTV.
President Emmanuel Macron said during his election campaign in February that he was opposed to exploration for gas and shale gas in mainland France.

“”There will be no new exploration licences for hydrocarbons,”
He was driven in a vehicle which consumes hydrocarbons; to a location to make this announcement.
Who needs that extra revenue? They can make that up with another 100,000 refugees
Mamma always said: ‘Stupid is as stupid do-us.’
Economic suicide! What other irrational policies will the man-child prescribe for France to help further its destruction?
France is on a path to return to the middle ages. The Muzzies will feel right at home, there.
Sounds like Rush Limbaugh’s fictional advertiser Weemsco Tuna: they like the fact that other companies are “dolphin safe” cause that means, there’s more for THEM to use...!
Then Freeze in the dark Pierre.
Ah, is it not great to have potential competitors destroy themselves?
It will not hurt them since Francistan, rapidly becoming a Muzzie nation, will no longer need vestages of white supremacy, such as electricity and running water.
Good ! A future very needy and reliable customer :)
I often thank pius drivers (yeah, I know, Prius). Thank you for using less petroleum and driving the price down so I can enjoy driving my Ram 1500 longer and farther.
They are going to build whale ships again! Back to the 17th century. Better give up toilet paper too! IDIOTS!
The French expect that they will be able to get their needed oil and gas from their former colonies or other providers, like the USA. There is an oil and gas glut in the world right now, with the USA being the largest provider. It seems the French think there is no strategic threat to their reliance on foreign oil and gas providers. We shall see.
Well, IIRC, France has 8 oil refineries. So they can do something with the crude. Why take a chance on having your supply reduced/cut off/made unaffordable though? This is nuts.
“There will be no new exploration licences for hydrocarbons.”
Maybe they can run their economy on vichy sois.
Leaving that oil in the ground is bad policy, it is a toxin that does not benefit the environment.
A national policy of NOT exploiting natural resources. Brilliant!
It seems the economic principle of Supply and Demand does not apply in France.
