November 1, 2012 (KHARTOUM) — South Sudan will resume the exportation of oil production within two weeks, a Sudanese official said following a series of meetings in Juba with government officials and petroleum companies.

Sudanese undersecretary general of oil ministry, Awad Abdel Fatah, agreed with South Sudanese oil deputy minister Elizabeth James Bol to resume oil production within 14 days, according to Khartoum based Al-Sudani daily newspaper.

The two officials agreed in Juba on Wednesday to meet again in the Sudanese capital within ten days to finalise the arrangements related the resumption of oil exportation through the pipeline.

The Sudanese official further said that oil operators were informed of the decision.

Last October South Sudanese oil minister Dhieu Dau announced that he ordered oil companies to restart oil production, adding the crude will reach the international markets within 3 months.

He however cautioned that technical preparations will determine the export schedule.

Sudan and South Sudan signed formally on 27 September an agreement on oil fees transportation. In accordance with the deal, Juba will pay Khartoum pay $9.10 and $11.00 per barrel respectively for the oil produced in Upper Nile and Unity states during three and a half years.

The two countries have to meet soon to resume talks over the remaining issues particularly Abyei and disputed areas on the common border. Also a joint security committee is to meet during the upcoming days to discuss troops redeployment from the buffer zone and its operationalisation.

It is not clear how many barrels will be produced per day. However, Dar Petroleum Company operating in Upper Nile state pledged following Addis Ababa deal to increase its production to 180.000 bpd.

Dar, which is a consortium including Chinese, Malaysian and South Sudanese oil companies, produce usually between 203,000 and 250,000 bpd.

          I just wish we be liberal enough and just cease from talking nonsense and bullshits. How does it sound when fully grown men like you on this page who I believe to be perhaps five years and above older than me start throwing abuses? If we can’t be responsible and control ourselves; who else can we rule and we claim every now and again that we are the damn leaders of tomorrow? Let’s think twice.

      These ,re good news for all civil servant in South Sudan especially Unity State Since we face Austerity measures.

    Your comments in this media is always insults and insults.What on hell are you people doing.Instead of pointing out the wrong way the country is being lead by some of us we waste our time in insults.God forbids our country.We sh’d use this media as a tool of change.

    Who never participated to bring the country to this level.Watch out those who claim to be the masters of South Sudan.If we need peace,we should not talk of tribes but South Sudan and we must love the country not tribe.If we continue time will come for destruction.Teachers taught lessons in class but sometimes student became masters than the teachers themselves.

    We in North don’t mind trade, oil and security but what we do mind is the 4 freedoms. we don’t want it, please don’t export your oil through our territory, our leaders in north are fools for believing SPLA, please who wants to deal with people who just got freed from US prisons? lol

    I argue the ministery of oil to remaind vigilance and watchful becuase our partners in the north are not trust worthy. If the stole our oil before, What is the guarantee they will not steal it this time? We have to keep our eyes on them, but most importantly, we have to explore and find an alternative means to export our oil. We can’t be partners for a long with people who lack integrity!

    Ours uncles running south are short in thinking, alway drank, they could not think well. They got small minded, they running the country like criminal Gangs who care about themselves. North settlers cannot be trusted, to let the oils pass through it. There a lot of thing to do business in south than the oil.
