August 7, 2019 (JUBA) - South Sudan has enhanced its oil production by 6,000 barrels, bringing the total oil output to over 180,000 barrels per day, the petroleum minister, Awow Daniel Chuang said on Wednesday.

The increase, he said was realized after the country resumed oil production at Block 1&2 in Manga oilfield, which was closed six years ago due to insecurity in the northern parts of the country.

He said Manga oilfields re-opening would boost the country’s efforts to reach the 200,000 barrels per day of oil by the end of this year.

"This is significant in our production and if we are to translate this figure into money, it would be a significant improvement in our revenue," said Chuang.

Oil-rich South Sudan is struggling to increase oil production, months after the signing of the revitalized peace accord in September 2018.

In June, the South Sudanese government announced the suspension of all pre-sale oil contracts in a move aimed at attracting competitors with better prices.

About 90% of South Sudan government’s revenue comes from oil resources, while the rest is collected in the form of customs taxes, market taxes, road taxes, income tax and permits, among others.

    Midiit Mitot,
    I thought you fellows should always complaint on and just about everything and also give solutions to how complaints should be met. But as far as l am concerned, you fellows just dumb as your so-called PhDs you blindly follow. Anyway, you Riek Machar supporters have never been the ’smartest kids’ every South Sudanese knows this. By the way Mr. Midiit Mitot>>>

      You cannot have it both ways chap. It is either peace and prosperity or aimless rebellions and lack of food in the containment sites, and across the the country. Mr. Midiit Mitot, are you not the same chap who always want the war to continue, want your SPLM/A-IO idiots to stay in fancy hotels and bars and want the negotiations to be always done in foreign capitals>>>

        when you fellows and your so-called PhD doctors don’t know who foot the bills for those useless negotiations in foreign capitals. Mr. Midiit Mitot, if l can honestly ask you personally. How much taxes do you personally pay to South Sudan coffers to be used to pay the containment sites, my guess is, it is nil/zilch chap. Midiit Mitot, most of the people refusing to get out of these filthy so-called UN POCs sites are our ’Nuers ke Nyantoc’>>>

        Mr. Midiit Mitot,
        I 100% agree with you this one, all what South Sudanese people need is peace nothing less. No doubt about that. But peace among South Sudanese people cannot be imposed and brought through ’devious means’ of always begging for fundings from the creeps like the ’US, the UK or their gulf Arab states financiers’ who will always come and use their shifty financiers as their ’blackmails and leverage’ over our country and our people>>>

          But this time around Mr. Midiit Mitot, that game of ’intrigue and gamesmanship’ isn’t being entertained some of these days fellows. Most of you ’Nuers ke Nyantoc, Chollos, Ferits and Murles’ have always been the *pawns* our cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan used against our country and our people and always paid with ’free food rations, arms, munitions and medicines’>>>
