Sudan Shuts Oil Pipeline for South Sudan Exports

Source: Reuters 6/9/2013, Location: Africa

Sudan has informed South Sudan that it has shut an oil pipeline that is used to transport crude from the South's oilfields for export, a senior company official said.

"We were informed that the pipeline has now been shut. We were in production for nearly a month and the oil has already reached the port of Sudan," Elhag John Simasona, chairman and CEO of PetroSouth Sudan, told Reuters.

Sudan's president had ordered a stoppage of all South Sudan's oil exports from Sunday, accusing his land-locked neighbour of backing rebels on his territory, and bringing the foes back to the brink of confrontation after months of relative peace.
