In a bid to ramp up oil production by the end of 2019, South Sudan has started repairing and pumping oil from wells damaged during the civil war.
The country’s oil infrastructure was badly damaged in the 2013 civil war, which started two years after it became an independent state.
South Sudan currently produces 160,000 barrels per day (bpd) and wells that reopened on Monday will add another 12,000 bpd to that, increasing production capacity to 70,000 bpd by the end of the year South Sudan’s Minister of Petroleum and Mining, Ezekiel Lol Gatkuoth, said.
The wells are being repaired with the help of the Sudan, which receives between around $9 and $11 per barrel of oil that landlocked South Sudan pumps through its pipeline to the port.
