August 22, 2019 (JUBA) - South Sudan is seeking a boost in oil exploration after it discovered new oil well in the northern parts of the country, the Petroleum minister, Awow
Daniel Chuang said.
This follows discussions between South Sudan's Petroleum minister, Daniel Awow Chuang and his Kenyan counterpart, John Munyes in Juba.
"In the quest of evacuation of crude oil from Kenyan oilfields to the international market, there is need for cooperation between South Sudan, Kenya and Uganda and probably DRC," said Awow.
The Petroleum minister, Awow Daniel Chuang said the young nation seeks investments to revive redundant projects in the oil and energy sector, which failed to take off largely due to lack of finance and disruption caused by the more than five years of a violent conflict.
Awow said it is important to focus on financing to tackle challenges the country faces and tap international funding and expertise in oil and gas.
