Last July, Khartoum and Juba agreed to repair the damaged oil wells and to resume oil production in several oil fields stopped since several years due to the nearly -five-year armed conflict in the country.

South Sudanese Oil Minister Ezekiel Lol Gatkuoth on 31 July 2018 told reporters in Khartoum that oil production will resume on 2 September with 45,000 barrels per day from El Toor and Toma South fields. After what will restart the production of other oil fields in Munga and Unity.

In line with the increase of oil production, South Sudan will produce 100,000 barrels per day of Dar Blend crude in September. Before December 2013, the east African country produced 250,000 barrels per day.

"A total of five cargoes were scheduled for lifting in September from Sudan’s Marsa Bashayer terminal, " market sources told the agency. Each cargo will load in 600,000-barrel clips.

In this August South Sudan, exports of Dar Blend will total 2.8 million barrels in four cargoes.

South Sudan heavily relies on oil income to fund up to 98% of its budget. Also, it relies on the Sudanese pipeline to export its oil production through the Red Sea.

In return, the transit and processing fees South Sudan pays to Sudan to transport its crude oil are an important revenue stream for Sudan.

South Sudan production is expected to increase further during the upcoming months, as the income will be dedicated to funding infrastructures and recovery programmes in the country and the peace implementation process.

China, India and Japan are the main buyers of the South Sudanese heavy oil crude.

Dar Blend is produced from blocks 3 and 7 in South Sudan’s northeastern states located in the Greater Upper Nile region.

        When the two leaders from South Sudan meet in Juba, they are going to have a meeting and secure their release from the bondage of POC. Those who are still there are psychologically depressed and are fearful for their return to their houses. We need to show them a sign that is full of food, and that is bright, and they also need to smell the air to see if there is any sign of money and oil and security. When things are okay, and the security arrangments are in place, they will naturally come out of their refugee’s camps voluntarily. They do not need to be told to get out. So, do not worry about them for now and their return depends on the security. They need to feel secure first before they come out. To me, it is not very important because things will explain and show themselves when the economy is kicking started. But you need to pump the oil and take it to the market and sell so that you can be used the oil money to implement the peace and to build trust between officials. When everyone has money and food to eat they will be thinking twice because nobody would want to go back to the bush and to eat cactus and grasshoppers like a monkey.
        Living in your own country is the best thing to think of especially for those who like to come to the city of juba and mess up things and then go back to the bush to become monkeys. That is not a good lifestyle. Those practices should be stopped because we are not animals atleast my family are not. So, if you are Eastern, Rhino, or Lino, you need to try to stay in The City of Juba because it is your city and you are not animals.

        Let us wait for the three monkeys for what they are going to say and do. The three monkeys are Rhino, lino, and Eastern.

        We can use the oil money to kick-start the economy of the country and implement the peace agreement. Then, later on, we can buy machinery to farm the land and preserve our oil for future generations.
