South Sudanese oil minister Stephen Dhieu Dau and his Sudanese counterpart Mohamed Zayed Awad who is visiting Juba agreed to review the fees paid by South Sudan for exporting its oil using Sudan’s pipeline and oil infrastructure.

The Sudanese oil ministry said in a statement extended to Sudan Tribune Wednesday that Juba agreed to provide 18.000 barrel oil crude per day to a power plant in the White Nile state.

The statement further said that additional 10.000 barrel of oil crude will be supplied to Khartoum refinery in order to meet a growing demand for petroleum products.

The oil deal is signed 24 hours before the inauguration by President Omer al-Bashir of a power plant in Um Dabakir area in the While Nile state at a capacity of 500 megawatts.

Also, the agreement comes in phase with Sudanese government plans to increase the capacity of Khartoum refinery to 200.000 barrel per day.

The statement didn’t elaborate on the financial cost of the deal, but analysts say it will be according to the international market.

The signed agreements will consolidate the joint interests and cooperation between the two countries and help to resolve the outstanding issues between the two countries.

The Sudanese minister stressed his ministry’s keenness to provide technical assistance to South Sudan, in the framework of bilateral cooperation adding that the agreement is in the interest of both peoples.

    The Juba Regime worry a lot and act swiftly when it come the issue that touch oil, but it drag their feet on implementing peace agreement. I hopefull the dollars issue will teach Government tough lesson and pressure to implement peace immediately as their children and wives in neighbour countries felt pinch of shortage of dollar. school fees and rents overdues, what goes around come around.
