August 8, 2019 (JUBA) – South Sudan has stepped up efforts aimed at enhancing cooperation with neighboring Kenya in the oil sector.

This follows discussions between South Sudan’s Petroleum minister, Daniel Awow Chuang and his Kenyan counterpart, John Munyes in Juba.

The two, the state-owned SSBC reported Wednesday, explored ways of enhancing cooperation in oil infrastructure development, among others.

“In the quest of evacuation of crude oil from Kenyan oilfields to the international market, there is need for cooperation between South Sudan, Kenya and Uganda and probably DRC,” said Awow.

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

Awow recently said South Sudan’s oil production has been boosted by 6,000 barrels, bringing oil output to over 180,000 barrels per day.

Last week, Kenya announced that it made its first ever oil export of 200,000 barrels since the discovery of crude oil in the country.

“My visit was to engage my colleague on how we can share experiences, learn from each other and find ways of cooperating in the area of infrastructure and building oil pipelines together,” said Munyes.

He said discussions with South Sudanese officials also focused on how regional countries could build a joint pipeline to Kenya’s coast.

In 2012, South Sudan agreed a deal with Kenya to build an oil pipeline to connect the country to the Kenyan port of Lamu in order to reduce over-reliance on neighbouring Sudan for all its oil export.

    Well, UhuRuto of Kenya have recently raked in $12 million from the sale of their ’paltry’ 200,000 barrels of crude oil; what has Kiir the CHIEF FOOL got from the millions of barrels of crude oil South Sudan exported since January 2019...?!

        South South,

        Why does the mention of Kiir poke a red hot iron in your arsehole...?! Kiir is MISMANAGING South Sudan. Leave NAS and the monkeys out of the equation and go on with your ’peace implemenation’; what’s your problem?!

          Eastern,
          Peace is taking place for real, only monkeys who are very confused can’t see that, but it’s ok because we really don’t pay attention to monkeys, they are nothing but easy going people. Keep your dirty mouth out of Kiir.

            South South,

            Stop being childish on this! Peace is not an event for it to ’take place’. Advise Kiir to stop his outdated antics of the SPLA days - what he now postures to lead is suposed to be a government with more civilians than rag-tag gunmen. This comes with a lot of headache. Kiir is just incompetent to manage things!

            Worthless jienge 🐵, then go develop your luaks and stop bragging yourself with the Kenyan success, they worked hard at least. Peace will only come once the last cowardly jienge settlers and drifters quit Nimule and Juba, otherwise war. Go free those Nuers in PoCs to go home, your jienge-nyagat peace is here, hurra! 😆jienge.
