Casablanca, (ADV) – Sudan’s Oil and Gas Minister, MrSaad-Eddin Al-Bushra announced on Sunday that a delegation from his country arrived in South Sudan to organize for resuming oil pumping.
“A delegation from the ministry and a number of oil companies arrived in South Sudan to get acquainted with arrangements to resume oil pumping,” said Al-Bushra.
Last June Khartoum hosted technical talks between officials in the two countries’ oil ministries relating to rehabilitation and re-operation of all oil fields in South Sudan.
Additionally, the framework deal, reached by South Sudan’s rivals in Khartoum on June 27 last year, included an item stipulating involvement of Sudan government in protection of the oil fields after coordination and agreement of Juba.
