August 4, 2012 (KHARTOUM) - Sudanese negotiating team confirmed that they reached an agreement on oil transportation fees but did not provide further details.

The agreement includes the pipeline, marine terminal, processing and transit fees.

Mutrif Sidiq, spokesperson of the government delegation in Addis Ababa told SUNA that the two parties have reached "reasonable" understanding on oil issue yesterday.

He added the agreement does not satisfy the ambition of both parties, stressing that it will be implemented once an agreement on the security arrangement is reached.

Sudanese media say South Sudan agreed to pay $25.80 per barrel, but there is no confirmation from the mediation or the two parties.

Juba shut down oil production last January after accusing Sudan of stealing its crude. The resumption of oil exportation needs some months of preparations oil experts say.

The talks will resume, according to Mutrif, after Eid al-Fitr within three weeks.

    WOW GODA
    you know Y because of the despair this pathetic opposition forces will feel after hearing this news

    they fail to convince the people of Sudan of the importance of freedom & democracy, fail to show them how this regime is repressing ,killing their bro’s all over margins of Sudan
    instead, they want to take advantage of the recession betting on the hungry mob
    how could they be more miserabl

            Zulu, your problem is that you donnot read well or you donnot understand what you have read! Read this from the article "it will be implemented once an agreement on the security arrangement is reached."" Is that clear? Did it get through your thick brain.Now what has this to do with race? or your just speaking out of you inferiority complex? Arabs, non Arabs, black , dark is all nonsensens!

          M Ali,
          I AM a Northerner but I am a realist, not one eyed as you are.
          There is an interesting study been done on comparing major stories published by Khartoum media as against outside media and the actual outcome of the story.
          The Khartoum media is being shown up for publishing one sided and incorrect stories.
          This is all to do with the NISS going in and stopping the truth being published

        Observer, you have previously said that you are from SS, no need to lie every time. I have never said am from SUDAN, neither jalabi, dark angle..or any other Sudanese. Today on this article you repeated that 2 times. You donnot need that; unless you want to cover up something! You are a lier!

          M Ali,
          I have never said I am from S Sudan. I have only said I worked in Juba for a few months when we were united.
          I live and work in Khartoum, have a Sudanese passport so I am not the liar.
          You know it is better to keep your mouth shut and thought to be a fool rather then open it and tell the world you are.
          Just because I don’t support your employer doesn;t mean I am not Sudanese.
          I am a realist

    News sources seem to indicate that the deals terms includ that South Sudan would pay $9.48 per barrel of oil for fees on one pipeline and $11 for another.

    The figures of $15-$26 apparently are based on the inclusion of a potential $3.028 billion payment will be made to South Sudan to Sudan if these deal is implemented.

        More information about the potential payment (quotes from an AP article),

        "That amount is a one-off payment and compromises of a third of Sudan’s financial gap resulting from the loss of South Sudan’s oil revenue, it said."

        Also, "Sidiq said Sudan’s budget deficit reached $10.4 billion."

    Mutrif Sidiq, the official spokesman for Sudan’s delegation in the talks in Addis Ababa told The Associated Press from Khartoum, that there was an agreement on the transit fees for two different pipelines, one transporting crude for export and another that is light crude oil that goes through a refinery before going to the port. One fee agreed to was $9.48, and another was for about $11.

      Mr.Observer, why are you so happy? Does it make you realistic when you go against the interest of your country! Funny! Whom are you trying to fool?! Transit fees is one part of the total fees , dear! What you mentioned is not the total fees because there is processing, port..etc fees.Intersting that you are celebrating that " your country" is getting less!

        M Ali,

        All I am trying to do on here is provide some balance to the one eyed government propoganda you and other extremists from our country spout

        Like the ordinary Sudanese I am also suffering with the price increases etc we are facing here.
        I am a realist to accept that both Sudans need each other and the oil and it annoys me that had two stubborn Govts could have sorted this out earlier
