South Sudan/Oil ProductionBack
[Published: Monday January 23 2012]

South Sudan to halt oil production in row with Khartoum
Khartoum, 23 Jan – (ANA) - South Sudan says it will halt oil production amid a dispute over sharing revenues with the Khartoum government.
South Sudan gained independence in July 2011 but the two states have not been able to agree on how to divide their oil wealth.
Most of the oil is produced in the south but is exported from Port Sudan in the north.
Sudan has accused the south of not paying transport fees and said it is taking the revenues in lieu of payment.
The two sides are currently holding talks in Ethiopia to try and reach a deal.
China, a major buyer of oil from both countries, has urged them to resolve their differences. (ANA)
