Cape Town - An announcement on whether or not exploratory hydraulic fracturing for Karoo shale gas will be allowed could be made in a fortnight, after the next Cabinet meeting, government spokesperson Jimmy Manyi said on Wednesday.

Briefing journalists in Pretoria following Cabinet's latest meeting, he said the matter of hydraulic fracturing was now before it "and receiving full attention".

Once this was completed, all interested parties, including the media, would be informed.

Pushed to put a date on this, he responded: "A more accurate picture will emerge at the next Cabinet briefing... (which) will provide a bit more detail."
