December 20, 2009 (KHARTOUM) – The oil productivity in Sudan is expected to drop by 10% a decade from now, the energy minister said this week.

Al-Zebeir Ahmed Al-Hassan made the remarks at the Sudanese national assembly at discussions over the Abyei referendum law stressing that oil is a non-renewable resource.

The Sudanese official also expressed surprise over what he described as exaggeration when speaking about oil reserves in the Abyei region. The area was demarcated this summer with the major oil fields going to the North.

Sudan produces producing about 500,000 barrels a day of oil and expects to maintain this level of output next year.

Last week Al- Hassan said that his government is getting ready to produce oil in Darfur, White Nile and Red Sea in addition to gas projects in Al-Dandar and Al-Souki.

        Shut up Alzebeir! You know nothing about productivity decline curve analysis. Your damn Asian oil contrctors are using wrong drilling fluids to suck more oil out while this activity damage the well bores and the reserves. Southern Sudanese turn will come to optimize this by using enhanced technology such as fracturing and acidization process which of course, I am an expert on them. See you at OPEC conference if you have a brain!!!!
