Jarch oil group congratulates new governor of Unity State




May 28th, 2008 — Jarch Management Group, Ltd. congratulates His Excellency, Dr. Joseph Wejang, former Minister of Health of the Government of Southern Sudan (GOSS) on his appointment as the new governor of Unity State. Dr. Joseph is well liked by his constituency and with the backing of local politicians and military, we expect him to accomplish great things for the state.

Unity State is an important part of South Sudan given its abundance of natural resources. It is one of the main production areas for the high quality oil sold as Nile blend. The state also has other important minerals including uranium. As part of the 2004 agreements signed with Jarch, Unity State would fall into the permit area. As such, we expect to lift the light, sweet crude from areas in the state once South Sudan secedes from Khartoum. In addition, we expect to mine the minerals in the region as well including the uranium deposits located in Bentiu and elsewhere. Dr. Joseph is a member of the Advisory Board of Jarch Management Group and we are honoured to have him as part of the team.

Jarch Management Group, Ltd. is a private company engaged in natural resources with a primary focus on hydrocarbons and other specific minerals in Africa.

    FM: Patriotic South Sudanese

    To: Jarch management

    Attn: Your grave interference in the issues of Unity & GOSS

    You should disband the Jarch as an oil exploration firm and join the political landscape in South Sudan. None of your contrbutions in the Sudanese media has ever mentioned what you’re upto in terms of purported "gas exploration" and "oil extraction" but rather you’re running after politicians congratulating and backing em up!

    What a shame! I can interpret that as wanting favours from your groomed politicians so that you are awarded contracts without competitive bidding.No way!, those fishy deals went with the era of coordination council but now .. you either function as a private sector or come out in the open and exist as a political party.

      Hello Jarch Management,

      You are really a true friend to the people of Southern Sudan by supporting their aspiration to become an independent sovereign nation in the near future. We in the South really want oil companies like you. We are fed up with companies only friendly to Khartoum like Chinese, Malaysian and the likes. We hope that you become the mother of all oil companies in the South as you are an American company that will continue to respect and love the people of Southern Sudan and abide by the laws governing them.

      You are welcome, friend!

        Mr. Gatwech,
        You seem to be a big fan of Jarch Management oil company. Your comments have always been in the favor of them. But let me advice you my brother that this US-based oil company is a big devil. Did you know that the reason they are appreciating the governor is not out of sincerity. This oil company are out to corrupt our most senior government officials so that they can be given a free ride on exploitation of oil. They are not in anyway intersted in the development of the southern Sudan. Did you know that the have Paulino Matip in their advisory committee. They have already invited Mr. Governor, Gatluak Deng and Dr. Riak. Ask yourself a question, why do they invite our leaders into their advisory committee? They want to make sure that all leaders are corrupted. If this leaders are being paid by the Jarch Oil Company or are members of Jarch, do you think they can check on their activities? I have never seen a country that function best with its leaders associated with oil companies. The bottom line is that, Jarch oil company is a United States based devil oil company. I would be a great disservice to the people of southern Sudan and Unity state in particular to give that devil a contract. Why do the foreign oil company have to be involve in politics of other States?
