Shell is planning to begin exploring for oil and gas off the Wild Coast.

The company will airgun blast the ocean surface for five months, starting in December.

The blasts create shockwaves that penetrate through the water into the ocean floor.

The exploration will cover the area from Morgan’s Bay to Port Saint Johns.
