South Sudan to Build Four Oil Refineries

The South Sudanese government has announced plans to construct four oil refineries in the Bentiu, Paloch, Thiangrial and Pagak regions. 

According to James Yugusuk, Director-General for Downstream at the country’s state-owned oil company Nilepet, the company is set to be a world-class operator by 2022. This will be achieved through the construction of four refineries in four locations in South Sudan and by training local engineers to global standards. 

“We want to extend our retail outlets to all the major towns in South Sudan. We want to have a very robust and highly effective joint venture, and this is for companies and people who are willing to do that. We also want to have a strong footprint in the research and development programs,” he said
