October 8, 2019 (JUBA) - South Sudan is renegotiating an oil deal with Khartoum as it will not meet the deadline to finish paying the $3 billion agreed as compensation for its secession from Sudan in 2011.

The Petroleum minister, Awou Daniel Chuang said Monday that the young nation had so far paid $2.4 billion as compensation to Sudan, but would not manage the remaining $600 million by December.

"As the contract expires, we should be able to extend because we cannot run operations in a vacuum. This agreement is what governs the fees that we pay to Sudan," he told reporters in the capital, Juba.

South Sudan got the lion’s share of the oil when it split from neighbouring Sudan, but it’s only export route is through Sudan, giving Khartoum leverage and leading to ongoing pricing disputes.

In 2012, however, South Sudan agreed to pay Khartoum $3 billion as compensation for oil reserves lost after Juba’s break away in 2011.

Chuang said talks on extending the deadline would start by end of October and that team from Juba was already in Khartoum working on the issue.

He disclosed that money was paid back by deducting $15 from each barrel of South Sudan’s oil processed in Sudan’s refineries.

South Sudan, where oil revenues make up nearly 98 percent of the budget, has been reeling an under economic crisis due to civil war.

South Sudan became the world’s youngest country after it split from Sudan in 2011.

But production was affected when civil war broke out two years after independence. A September peace deal is largely holding, but a plan to form a unity government in May was pushed to November 12.

South Sudan, official figures show, presently produces 135,000 barrels of crude oil per day.

      Mr. Eastern,
      provoking things without ’power’ behind them is ’pretty much useless’. Over 90% oil fields are in the ’Dinkas/Muonyjiengs of the Sudan countries’, only a two, none productive oil fields are in ’our Nuer ke nyantoc countries (states)’. ’Our Nuers ke nyantoc’ even destroyed them in 2014. So what are you cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan still ’propagating your lies and lies about?>>

The jellaba decided to ’cut off’ South Sudan from the Sudan for the same reason...Now in Equatoria, we have to design for where the likes of Elia Lumoro will go: he will be tried once he flees to the UK after abandoning Kiir -not an option form him.

      I can’t put into words just how insane this is. Why on earth does Juba insist on this one sided ’relationship’ with the North? Not only should we not maintain this arrangement, we should not transport our oil through the North altogether — even if it was in line with international transit fees. There are alternatives to this humiliating arrangement...

        ..if those brain-dead hicks in Juba had retained a billion dollars (out of the tens of billions they stole) they could have built refineries; this would have allowed South Sudan to sell processed petroleum products to Ethiopia - earning Juba almost $3 billion dollars annually. This would have obviated the need to subsidize Khartoum’s occupation of our lands...

      Great! Lets focus on EQUATEXIT. It is easy, doable and attractive. It will save us the inconvenience of having to carry burdensome jienges and nyagats all along. They are a worthless baggage. Come Nov 12, nothing, no RTGoNU and all will have to be restarted; chaos, anarchy, idiocy, jiengeism, nyagatism etc.. We are for the "EQAUTORIA AGENDA".
