Connect with us:

As South Sudan’s Ministry of Petroleum undertakes an active foreign investment drive, Energy Capital & Power is re-releasing its Africa Energy Series: South Sudan 2020 digital report that provides a pathway for investors to gain exclusive insight into one of sub-Saharan Africa’s largest petroleum markets.

Featuring an introductory message from Minister of Petroleum H.E. Puot Kang Chol, the report outlines the vision of the South Sudanese Government for its domestic oil and gas sector, prioritizing heightened E&P activities as well as infrastructure upgrades, refurbishment and intervention works, with a view to raising current output levels.

Primary investment opportunities identified include South Sudan’s first-ever oil licensing round, launched in June, which features five exploration blocks with high hydrocarbon potential. The downloadable report also examines the complex nature of South Sudan’s relationship with Sudan and its dependency on neighboring export pipelines and refineries, as well as the impact of COVID-19 on South Sudan’s crude exports and preliminary delays in resumption of oil production in Blocks 1A, 1B and 5A.

Finally, the publication takes a historic look back at development since first discoveries by Chevron, to peak production of around 350,000 barrels per day, and explores the role of leading operators, including Nilepet, Dar Petroleum Operating Company, Greater Pioneer Operating Company and Sudd Petroleum Operating Company, in shaping the country’s current upstream landscape. Additional information about events highlighted in the report, as well as an update on South Sudan’s first ever oil and gas licensing round, will be unpacked at the upcoming U.S.-Africa Energy Forum, taking place in Houston on 9-10 December, 2021.
