Sudan shuts oil pipeline for S Sudan exports

Kuala Lumpur, June 9, 2013

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 on Sunday.

"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. - Reuters
