January 7, 2014 (KHARTOUM) – The Sudanese oil Minister Makkawi Mohammed Awad affirmed that flow of crude from Adar Yeil’s oil field in Upper Nile state is normal despite the unrest engulfing South Sudan since last month.

Awad, who paid a visit to Juba on Monday, met with his South Sudanese counterpart Stephen Dhieu Dau, to discuss issues of mutual concern in the petroleum sector.

The two sides underscored the importance of maintaining oil flow from landlocked South Sudan through Sudan’s pipelines that extend to terminals in the coastal city of Port Sudan.

Sudan’s oil minister said that production in Adar Yeil’s oil field increased from 165,000 barrels per day (bpd) to 200,000.

Forces loyal to South Sudan former Vice President Riek Machar took control of the Unity state which contains part of the oil fields.

Oil companies in Unity state mainly from China and India evacuated their workers and made sure to shut down the oilfields there which are believed to have been producing around 45,000 bpd.

Sudan receives a fee from Juba on every barrel of oil exported through its pipelines which in 2014 is expected to bring billions of dollars into Khartoum’s coffers.

    If oil is flowing at a rate of 200,000 from upper nile then I think Machar is in trouble! Any way that is good news as the government can sustain to provide food for the rest of the population.

      The traitors want to deprived both nations economically. The good news though is the oil sit on dinka ngok land which make it hard for looter/militias to take control of it. Shameless riek is not tired of rebellion. I’m beginning to question riek qualification. The guy simply lack reasoning. Primitives never change no matter what quality of education u distilled in them.
