February 27, 2013 (KHARTOUM) – The Sudanese government has offered Indonesia oil and gas exploration opportunities in the country for its companies, an official in Jakarta said.

Indonesia’s official news agency (ANTARA) quoted deputy minister for energy and mineral resources Susilo Siswoutomo as saying that Sudan has "abundant" reserves of oil.

He made the remarks during his meeting with a visiting Sudanese delegation led by the speaker of Sudan’s parliament, Ahmed Ibrahim al-Tahir.

"Sudan has produced quite a lot of crude oil reaching 500,000 barrels a day. The reserves are still abundant," Siswoutomo said.

He noted a recent meeting between Indonesian president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono and Sudan’s Omer Hassan al-Bashir in Cairo on the sidelines of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation summit.

Sudan’s official news agency (SUNA) at the time quoted Bashir as calling on Indonesian companies to invest in his country. Yudhoyono echoed his call.

Landlocked South Sudan shut down its entire oil output of 350,000 barrels per day (bpd) a year ago after failing to agree on export and transit fees with Khartoum. It had hoped to be producing 230,000 bpd by December 2012 after a deal was signed in September last year but security issues have delayed implementation of other parts of the agreement.

South Sudan split from Sudan in 2011 after decades of civil war and a landslide vote for independence in a referendum at the start of that year.

Southern oil represented more than a third of Khartoum’s revenues and its largest source of hard currency, leaving the government struggling for alternatives since the South’s independence.

      hey Master begger, I hope soon you will regret giving thanks for something that haven’t workout yet. Think about this: If Indonesia is not a country struggling for economic hardship like bloody Sudan,why would Indonesian people always drown in Southern pacific on boats to seek asylum in Australia? I have been to Indonesia for cadetship and it was one of the poorest countries on earth trust me

        let me put it clear,
        Indonesia is the largest Muslim country in the world, they sympathized with their Muslim brothers in the North and are trying to give them hope by giving them fake promises faking their solidarity with the North. China and Malaysia could have done this long ago.... get more convincing answers to yourself after this piece of mind opening paragraph.
