December 1, 2011 (JUBA) - South Sudan warned all foreign oil companies, the oil consortia and pipeline operators in the country not to cooperate with Sudan on crude oil-related matters, unless authorized.

The directive was contained in a press release issued by South Sudan’s petroleum and mining ministry following reports of Sudan’s apparent intention to confiscate 23% of South Sudan’s entitlement oil allegedly as payment in kind for pipeline and transit fees.

“The government of South Sudan will not tolerate any public or private party operating in South Sudan or providing services to South Sudan to act in any way complicit in the theft of South Sudan’s oil,” partly reads the statement signed by Stephen Dhieu Dau, the petroleum and mining minister.

Describing Sudan’s intended move as an “illegal act”, Dau, urged the northern government to “refrain from any hostile act and reconsider its position regarding the $5.4bn package and not to deprive Sudanese citizens from the benefit this assistance provides”.

The Petroleum minister described as “blatantly false” allegations that South Sudan was not paying for the use of Sudan’s pipelines or other oil-related infrastructure, adding that these accusations are contrary to the established contractual and legal structures, including the principles of international law.

Meanwhile, the ministry also warned potential buyers of crude oil illegally obtained from South Sudan, saying the southern government will take legal actions against all parties involved in the said transaction.

On Wednesday, South Sudan’s government reacted negatively to reports that Sudan plans to take 23% of the new country’s oil exports, saying it will consider suspending oil production if north Sudan continues to impose high transportation and refinery costs.

Talks between the North and South collapsed once again on Wednesday after the African Union High Panel Implementation (AUHIP) failed to resolve differences between two the countries.

The AUHIP proposed a compromise by which Khartoum gets a percentage of annual oil exports that would include the transit fees to help Sudan overcome the current economic crisis. In return for that Sudan would facilitate border trade and open ports for the flow of goods to South Sudan.

Sudan suggested that the south pay $10.5 billion during the next five years but Mbeki’s team and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) put the figure at $7.4 billion. Neither of the numbers was agreed on.

The head of Sudan’s delegation Sabir Mohamed al-Hassan accused the south of involving other issues at the oil negotiations such as Abyei and border demarcation.

Al-Hassan further said that they put oil treatment cost at $6 and after adding transit fees, the cost of transportation and port charges and after taking into account the changes in oil prices it would all add up to $36 per barrel

He revealed that South Sudan rejected the figures on the grounds that the oil pipeline was constructed using the south’s oil money.

"We did not move forward in the negotiations because of the lack of clarity of vision with the other side," al-Hassan said.

After South Sudan’s independence in July, the only way to export oil has been through north Sudan. The new country has been pondering building a pipeline that runs through neighboring Kenya will but analysts say it will take years to build.

          Mr. NUERONE,

          Please we are not talking about the so call DINKAS here now, but about our OIL which is being looted by the ARABS.

          Sometimes when people are talking NATIONAL, issues don’t NARROW yourself down to the TRIBAL line.

          We need each other, DINKA needs NUER, KAKWA, KUKU,AZANDE, ACHOLI, MADI, MUNDARI, MURELLE and like wise etc.

          Hence, the whole thing here is ’’PATERIOTISM’’.

          Sudan suggests that South Sudan should pay them $ 10.5 billion over the next five years! The question is what percent is that of entire South Sudan revenue of the five years? If that is 5% of South Sudan total revenue in five years then they should say yes to that otherwise that’s a deal breaker. South Sudan should be building pipeline through Kenya with less than that not even in five years.

        The only question that has not been asked is how much does a barrel of oil sell in the market? Find that price first and then subtract $36 from that, and see how much the south will make on one barrel of oil....

      Thanks Minister Dhieu, South Sudan is capable of building new pipeline to other Djibouti or Kenya, and it is what Uganda will do, then let poor Arabs eat their pipeline which they stole from the Oil revenue of South Sudan. Make sure and be serious so that those thugs from China should not forge wrong agreement with Khartoum because they need oil too much. Thanks again

    Mr minister, where were you? I think they have been stealing it like that for the last past four months who knows since the pipeline passes through them.Sudan should charge only for port facilities in the Red Sea because the pipeline and even that facilities were built with stolen resources from the South.

    I think it is high time these oil companies should change their attitudes of seeing the government of the former Sudan as always the boss of South Suadn oil, the people of South Sudan had put that to a hold when they voted for independence last July.

    Any company that still engages with them regarding our oil shall be asked to leave our country indefinitely.
