Joseph Mayuol Bol, the director for maintenance and construction downstream for Nile petroleum said his company had identified Wau town as a strategic fuel depot for the Greater Bahr el Ghazal region.

“Nile Petroleum is currently undergoing construction of a fuel depot facility; we are locating Wau as a strategic fuel depot station which will be a regional site to serve the greater Bahr el Ghazal with fuel,” Bol told Sudan Tribune.

“This is the project Nile petroleum is implementing, also it is a project going to other states at the level of the 10 states, at the level of greater Bahr el Ghazal. In the next coming months or next year, there will be no fuel crisis as we are now witnessing,” he added.

The official acknowledged that fuel had become a big problem, which had forced some people to abandon their cars and resort to walking, citing himself as an example.

“Am now using boda boda because of the issue of fuel, 1 litter now is 350 SSP which is too much citizens cannot afford that, so we want to trim down the issue of fuel so that everybody get services,” he said.

According to the Nile Petroleum official, the project started since 2007, but political factors in the country delayed the project, which could finally take off and would be completed next year.

The governor of Wau, Andrea Mayar Acho lauded Nile Petroleum Company for taking up the initiative.

“This will be a great development because not only the availability of fuel but also Nile pet [Nile Petroleum] will also construct schools and health facilities in the area,” said Acho.

    International petroleum price is 70 cent to a dollar per littre. How the hell would a petrol sell at over 6 dollars. Lack of paved road and refinery is the root cause. Our leaders are busy fighting over leadership but when it come to service delivery, they all failed. Kiir, Riek and bunches of current/former are equally worthless and corrupt. Time for young people with modern mind to take over.
