S.Sudan could take 6 months to resume oil output

“South Sudan’s Upper Nile oilfields may take up to half a year to resume production after the government signs a final deal on export fees with Sudan, South Sudan’s oil minister said on Thursday. Getting crude flowing again from the Unity oilfields may take up to a year, he said, adding that facilities needed repairs and renovation after they were damaged during border fighting with Sudan earlier this year. Landlocked South Sudan, which seceded from Sudan last year, shut down its production of roughly 350,000 barrels per day in January during a row with Khartoum over how much it should pay to pipe crude through Sudan for export.”
