195. An exploration licence for underground reservoirs gives the holder the right to carry out, in the territory covered by it, exploration for and development of underground reservoirs, but not the right to use them for storage or permanent disposal of mineral substances or industrial products or residues, except for a trial period determined by regulation.
Nevertheless the holder shall not drill a well or test hole without having obtained in each case a licence issued for such purpose by the Minister; the Government shall determine by regulation the conditions upon which such licence shall be issued.
