UPDATED: SPLA claim seizure of South Kordofan’s Heglig oil area


April 10, 2012 (BENTIU) - South Sudan’s army (SPLA) claim they captured the oil-rich area of Heglig in Sudan’s South Kordofan State on Monday afternoon after repulsing an attack by the Sudan Armed Forces (SAF).

According to the commander of the SPLA’s fourth division, James Gatduel Gatluak, SAF launched air and ground attacks that forced them to respond by engaging the Sudanese army and taking control of Heglig later on Tuesday.

Heglig was placed in South Kordofan by the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague in 2009. But South Sudan’s President, Salva Kiir, has recently hinted that his country intends to reassert its claim over the valuable oil-producing area. Heglig was initially called Aliny a Dinka Panrou name which has been washed away because of oil discovering in the area, some South Sudanese officials claim.

The SPLA general further alleged that their troops are advancing about 30 kilometer north of Heglig oil field, which accounts for roughly half of its 115,000 barrel a day output. In late March the SPLA briefly occupied a part of Heglig before withdrawing.

In Khartoum, Sudan Tribune failed to reach a SAF spokesperson to respond to the SPLA’s claims. However, military sources requesting anonymity said oil workers were evacuated and the army was ordered to withdraw from the area.

When Sudanese President Omer Hassan al-Bashir holds a press conference with the visiting Nigerian president he is expected to speak about these developments.

Last week the SPLA clashed SAF and it alleges rebel militia the South Sudan Liberation Army (SSLA), which Juba claims in backed by Khartoum. Sudan denies this and counters that Juba back rebels in South Kordofan.

Khartoum also alleges that South Kordofan rebels - the SPLM-N - were involved in clashes between the two armies around Heglig at the end of March.

Unity State’s SPLA commander said Tuesday that SAF launched a ground attack on their positions in Tachuin as they had done previously. According to the SPLA, SAF attacked through both by aerial bombardments and a ground assault.

It was this assault, the SPLA said, resulted in the full day of fighting between the two countries’ armies in Heglig, during which SAF lost control of the area’s main oil field.


On Tuesday a Sudanese Antenov war plane bombed Unity State’s Abiemnom County, according to local officials. Abiemnom Commissioner Ajang Gedi told Sudan Tribunethat a SAF bombers dropped six bombs in Pankuel Payam [district] at 3:00am on Tuesday morning.

Gedi said that four people were in critically seriously wounded in the attack; two children, one woman and one man. The commissioner appealed to the international community to pressure Sudan to stop the aimless targeting of South Sudan’s civilian population.

“We are appealing to the African Union and international community about Sudanese government violation against the people of South Sudan", he said.

Gedi added that Abiemnom County would stand behind the SPLA, adhering the call by Unity State governor, Taban Deng Gai, for communities to raise material support for South Sudan’s army (SPLA) so it is prepared for a possible invasion by north Sudan’s military.

The Sudanese Air Force has bomb Rubkotna, Guit and Abiemnom Counties of Unity State on several occasions in recent months. Each time the attacks have been denied by Khartoum despite the craters left by the bombs.

On 4 April South Sudan said it had shot down a Sudanese MiG-29 aircraft over Unity State but this was also denied by Khartoum.

Last week South Sudan’s Oil Minister, Stephen Dhieu, claimed an illegal 25 kilometre pipeline had been discovered running into Unity State from South Kordofan.

                    Higlig (panthou) belongs to Dinka of Pariang county of Unity state. The SPLM made a mistake in Nairobi before CPA by conceding the area to Dinka Ngok of Abyei after a dispute between Unity state and Abyei. When the PCA court ruled in found higlig not historically part of Abyei. Then Khartoum said it belonged to the North since Abyei is in South Kordofan. SPLM made a big mistake in Nairobi.

                Panthou (Heglig) is rightfully ours and your temporary control is waning. We have no scruples taking it. South is merely responding to aggression against our forces in Tachwin. Unless the SAF forces cease and desist from their adventure, we will take measures to protect the territorial integrity of our country including retaking stolen lands (Panthou).

                It is surely the intention of the NCP to declare war on South Sudan as the inner circle is torn with the pro war, eagerly prone to declare war. All of these are inticipated by our intelligence.
                Another issue is the declration of war has been done so by the NCP is evident by its aerial bombardment of ss. that is very clear by the NCP’s actions and it bears full responsibilities for this.

            Second to that, you don’t have the money to buy anybody to go fight for you; you guys are now sitting ducks. Just be careful, unless you’re out of the country.

        Any Thomas should go to Panthau (Helglig) and see the Glance forces of the SPLA there. The origen name of Heliglig is called Panthau which was turned to helglig in 1999 by Bashir to sound like a northern territory, Panthau is part of the Dinka land which is belong to a section called Alor Kuot or Rowueng in Parieng county unity state.

        MR. Canada,
        There is no need of proof now. BBC quotes, "A Sudanese military spokesman told the BBC its forces had been defeated outside Heglig, and retreated north.." SPLA/M expected separation was going to be backed by force because we cannot be bullied like children. Sudan’s claims to the contrary is negated by their use of aerial bombing which is backing the gound forces. Ergo, spla counters.

      This should be taken as a fair game, because if SAF is doing Ariel bombardment in Unity State then South Sudanese army offensive against Sudan arm forces is a fair game.

      Adaryiel was South Sudanese territory anyway; there is no question about that.

      We trust SPLA but spokeman should report facts instead of lie. Let’s leave lie to fake arabs whose Mohemmad brainwashed their minds with deception. SPLA must standby ready to response whichever way Khartoum like to solve the problem.

    Mr. North Sudanese;

    I can tell how frustrated you are already by spending every second online writing some bullshit on Sudan tribune. The capture of Heglig is just a warm up for SPLA. I can even tell how worried and insecure NCP is by trying to persuade Juba to give a security deal like Chad, but Al bashire did not realised that there is a big difference between an elephant and a mailbox. Chad/s.

    As the GOSS runs out of cash and paying salaries for the soliders becomes impossible, Mr.Cowboy has started to fear a coup and the only way to distract the soliders is to keep them out of juba busy fighting. This and offcourse the refusal of Sudan to extend the deadline has made the SPLA lose its mind and try and attack higlig again. Recently we come to notice that janobeen are very emotional con.

      They are happy when they vote for independence, sad when they are told to leave, angry when they are broke. They also oyee when SPLA "claims" victory, speechless when the truth comes out, very fast when the SAF comes for them. Today i will not spoil this fake victory for SPLA supporters, enjoy drink sum good marisa and ill c u when the SAF come for the rats.

      This time we don,t want to waste our time talking to those NCP boys on the web. We need to take enough time encouraging our army to defend panthou. 200 bulls should not be in vain, their blood brought panthou back to its original place couz we, in S. Sudan do not kill our cows in vain

      We fought for 21 years without a nickle. Salaries don’t motivate someone to protect his land, wife, and children from marauding jallabah. We are happy to fight for 1 cent a year if it means preserving our hard-earned independence.

    It’s a trap, our idiot SPLA generals are too stupid to find out. Why would you put our soldiers at risk by invading an empty area. What is the gain from Heglig but giving them a reason to bomb unity state

      Northern Sudanese! have you believe me fully now: from tactcical withrawal first, going on the offensive today and all these happened. You guys adore a lunatic bashir al luti. This man has nothing to offer this world: he does three basic things which every animal does: eat- deficate, urinate and sleep. what use does a man like this has and yet you adore him. That’s why arabs have worm heads.

      Bravo General James Gatduel Gatluak for liberating Higlig. It was captured on Tuesday at 3pm. I talked to my cousin whose forces battled SAF and defeated them on Tuesday. Bravo the mighty SPLA of courageous fighters. The video proof will come soon. Just tune to your TVs. The Vice President, Dr. Riek Machar is in the area in Unity state.

        Higlig (panthou) belongs to Dinka of Pariang county of Unity state. The SPLM made a mistake in Nairobi before CPA by conceding the area to Dinka Ngok of Abyei after a dispute between Unity state and Abyei. When the PCA court ruled in found higlig not historically part of Abyei. Then Khartoum said it belonged to the North since Abyei is in South Kordofan. SPLM made a big mistake in Nairobi.

    After the full Liberation of panthou of panriang county, our next target is Abyei Deng Kuol. This area should also be liberated, so that our Ngok Dinka should go to cultivate this year. These Arabs only understand the language of guns and we have to make them understand through that language. Abyei should be back within three days from now

    The mobsters of the NCP don’t listen to what people say but through their eyes! For how long should President Kiir ask President Bashit to come to Juba for the security summit? In order for Peace to come to both countries, the thieves of the NCP need to give up some of their addictions. Such as Lying, empty promising, stealing, and mugging on others.
    SPLA-Oyeeee! SPLA-Oyeee! SPLA-Oyeee!!!!!!!!

    Khartoum have declared war against SOUTH SUDAN for one year now . It has been bombarding the SOUTH SUDAN territory and its OIL field for a year without the dump UN saying a word to the KHARTOUM terrorists. Now enough is enough SOUTH SUDAN should not sit crossleged while it soveriegnty is being spoiled. Kiir has now started fucking the culprits.

      I shouldn’t be selfish to congratulate only the effort of the Commander-in- Chief and the General James Gatduel Gatluak but also the brave South Sudanese who sacrificed their dear lives for that cause. May God bless you and maintains your Unity as one Army.

    Kensington Square is also near elite schools such as Cedar Primary School and St. Gabriel Secondary School. Paya Lebar Methodist Girls’ School and DPS International School are also around in the area.
