March 12, 2013 (KHARTOUM) – The delegations of Sudan and South Sudan in the Ethiopian capital agreed on Tuesday to allow for the resumption of oil exports that were suspended last year for disagreement on the transit fees that should be assessed.

Landlocked South Sudan inherited most of the 350,000 barrel-per-day oil reserves that existed under the once united country but can only export it using the pipelines that run all the way to the terminals on the Red Sea.

Under the terms of the implementation matrix distributed by the African Union High Level Implementation Panel (AUHIP), the governments of the two countries are to instruct oil companies within 14 days to re-establish production, processing and transportation.

The two parties also agreed that a review of the existing metering system shall take place prior to resumption of production, with each party conducting the review respectively within its territory as stipulated in the signed agreement.

Last year, the two countries signed a number of cooperation agreements that called for resolving border issues, establishing a demilitarized zone, implementing the “Four Freedoms” pact and resuming oil production.

But Khartoum put implementation on hold and insisted that a security portion be concluded before moving to affecting other items.

Last Friday, two sides signed a deal in the Ethiopian capital outlining on steps to implement the demilitarized zone (DMZ), removing a major obstacle in the way of other issues.

Oil is the main source of state income for food imports and the loss of oil exports following a dispute over pipeline fees has left both economies in turmoil.
It remains to be seen how long it will take oil companies to prepare the pipelines for the flow of oil, a process which could take several months.

    Let hope that this is not fake agreement between two countries. You better refer back to Abiel Alier book in tittle ’’ too many agreements disown’’.

            Muhammad Ali2.
            we are forgetting even the resumption of our crude oil through Sudan. we have looked for other alternative ways to take oil to International Market. In South Sudan National Bank 100$ is equal to 360 SSP and in black market is 405 SSP against 100$ compare to your country who is trying to spoil S. Sudanese economic. The only thing we should agree up on it trading between two nations

            Mohammed Ali, when is the last time you shut down the pipeline for security reason when the oil was running through Sudan? Stop your empty pride that assumes the power you don’t have! The pipelines were shut down by South Sudanese because you Sudanese were stealing oil. This is why you’ll not see South Sudan oil going through Sudan again ever; believe it or not!

            The heat is on now that Sudan largest flour company cut its production by 50% made the emotion to be felt on the top of the food chain! When it comes to bombing and occupying South Sudanese territories; Sudan does it at will! But when it comes to what Sudan want to eat; they need South Sudan for its oil! Here is news flash; that’s not oing to happen!

          I agree with you "Force"1, 2; North Sudan (NCP) never keep their words before South Sudan break away. Let the RSS keep in mind on road transport rather then pipe line.otherwise they will not achieve anything.

      master,
      south sudan had given up the idea of the sudanese pipeline until sudan re-ignited it acceptance. the upcoming donars conference was to address a lot of issues including the one of an alternative pipeline and financial assistance that would keep the country going until the oil begins to flow in the new pipeline. sudan would miss the 3.8 billion usd and remained with a pipeline that’ll rust

      If the Mr. Kiir & his cohorts relent to some greedy international pressure to open the oil taps only & not to solve the pressing issues,then that will be their demise. S Sudanese have spoken with 98% rejection of anything to do with N Sudan. But our evil international community wants to dube S Sudan with its baseless propaganda that S Sudan & N Sudan are intertwine which is a pure lie.

      Sudan is flat broke,she has no choice but to accept whatever offered to her by the South.the lies are not competing with reality anymore.all the agreements will soon go through because they need southern consumers that used to be the mainstay of consumerism in Sudan or else the changes will take long time to be felt.

        There is time for everything. Both countries have tested enough painful share of oil shutdown consquences as their economies are in tatters. Hyocritical as it used to be, the Sudan refused to admit the truth. Sudan often behaves like a playful, spollt child who even if you catch him stealing, won’t concede any wrongdoing. It sometimes complicates rather than simplifies matters.

    Pagen is very happy now about the resumption of oil export. They are very quick to agree without properly reading the document. All they want is oil money for their pockets. They are not yet convinced that any agreement with NCP regime is most of the time deceitful. I am doubting this quick agreement with NCP. lets wait and see.

    The so called fake agreement’s meant to waste time.
    Instead of discussing About Abyei then the issue of oil will be last.
    Our mediators are rushing in to these simply because the country’s economy is about to collapse and they are tired of begging the Donor.
