With oil at stake, South Sudan's crisis matters to its customers

JUBA – South Sudan is producing around 130,000 barrels of oil a day and wants to increase its refinery capacity to supply fuel to neighbouring countries, the petroleum minister said on Monday.

“We are focusing on four or five refineries so we can finally be able to sell to Ethiopia, Sudan, Kenya and Uganda,” Minister Ezekiel Lol Gatkuoth told an African oil conference in Cape Town.

East Africa’s only mature oil producer, South Sudan is aiming to double oil output to 290,000 bpd in 2017/18 the finance minister said in January.

    1. “South Sudan is producing around 130,000 barrels of oil a day…
    Will one percent (1%) of the conversion go the the ordinary people of South Sudan who are scattered around Africa for their daily bread?

    2. “We are focusing on four or five refineries so we can finally be able to sell to Ethiopia, Sudan, Kenya and Uganda,”
    Will one percent (1%) of that “focusing” goes to the good wretched people of South Sudan?

    3. “East Africa’s only mature oil producer, South Sudan is aiming to double oil output to 290,000 bpd in 2017/18 the finance minister said in January.”
    Will that dream of the “mature oil producer” include the good people of South Sudan Refugees? There is an excellent African proverb with respect to unrealistic dream: Forgive me for ‘sloppy’ translation >>> “IF YOU DON’T DIE; YOU ARE HEALTHY”.
