repair-mozambiqueminingpost-photograph_848w477hSouth Sudan said on Thursday it had agreed with its northern neighbor Sudan to repair oil infrastructure facilities destroyed by conflict within three months to boost production in Africa’s youngest country.

Michael Makuei Lueth, South Sudan’s information minister, told Reuters that officials agreed with their visiting Sudanese counterparts to ‘evaluate and assess the damage’ to South Sudan’s oilfields in the Heglig area in the country’s north.

‘There is an agreement between the two oil ministries of the two countries. They agreed to cooperate and work together in order to repair (the damage),’ he said.

South Sudan depends virtually entirely on oil sales for its revenue but production has declined since war broke out in the country in 2013.Source: Reuters
