This fact sheet offers basic information about the economy of Sudan’s oil
industry, all taken from publicly available sources. It a living document, we will
regularly issue updates on our website www.esoconline.org. Hard copies will be
forwarded on request. We hope to provide a useful source of information for
people who are interested in this vital industry.
Sudan’s oil wealth has the potential to be a major driver of peace and equitable
development. While driving of strong economic growth rates and being the
principal source of income for both the National Government and the
Government of Southern Sudan, it also continues to be a source of controversy.
The European Coalition on Oil in Sudan (ECOS) believes that the oil industry
should promote peace and respect for human rights, first of all by actively
supporting the implementation of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement. We
support Sudanese civil society organizations in their advocacy towards the
implementation of social and environmental standards, financial accountability,
fair compensation for victims of oil operations, and multi-stakeholder
consultation processes, all of which are required by the CPA, but not yet fully realised.
