48707408207 0b62e8bd78 cIn a bid to further strengthen ties with South Sudan, Sudan’s Minister of Energy and Mining, Adel Ali Ibrahim, will attend the upcoming South Sudan Oil and Power (SSOP) 2019 conference, taking place at the Crown Hotel in Juba, on 29-30 October

The minister will meet with his counterpart, Minister Awow Daniel Chuang, to discuss the resumption of Block 5A - which has the potential to produce up to 60,000 bpd and is operated by Sudd Petroleum Operating Company.

The ministers will discuss oil infrastructure, including logistics corridors between the two countries, shared pipelines and processing facilities.

“The resumption of Block 5A will happen very soon. We currently in negotiations with Sudan regarding pipeline agreements to export crude from this block. South Sudan does not currently have its pipeline and we are contingent on this before production resumes,” Arkangelo Okwang Ojok, director-general of Training, Planning and Research for the Ministry of Petroleum said.

With a major focus on ramping up its oil industry, South Sudan is recovering its position as a major African producer and is actively creating a favourable investment climate through high-level discussions with energy leaders, ministries and companies at SSOP 2019, produced by Africa Oil & Power.

Under the theme ‘Focus on Finance’ SSOP 2019 is set to explore the challenges and means of financing projects, attracting new investment and investing in facilities. In addition to finance, the conference will examine community development, environmental issues and oilfield technology.

Minister Chuang will reveal the details of the 2020 oil and gas licensing round at SSOP 2019, which will include dates, requirements and other details of the tender.
