South Sudan moves closer to oil pipeline to the south

South Sudan has moved closer to its target of gaining access to a pipeline to export its oil to the south.

The presidents of Uganda, Kenya and Rwanda have agreed to build two pipelines across East Africa.

One would run from South Sudan to the Kenyan port city of Lamu and the other would stretch from Rwanda to Mombasa.

Currently, South Sudan exports its oil through Sudan and supplies are often disrupted as the two countries disagree over pricing and security issues.

The three-way agreement between the presidents was confirmed by Uganda's foreign minister, Sam Kutesa.

Last week, Sudan's President Omar Hassan al-Bashir threatened again to stop oil flows across its border with South Sudan, unless South Sudan stops supporting rebels operating across the shared frontier.

South Sudan denies supporting rebels and, in turn, accuses Khartoum of backing insurgents on its soil.

When South Sudan became independent nearly two years ago, it took 75% of the oil reserves of Sudan.

However, Sudan retained the pipeline infrastructure, as well as the refineries and export terminal at Port Sudan on the Red Sea.

East Africa is experiencing an energy boom at the moment, after oil and gas discoveries in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania.
New railway

Mr Kutesa said the three countries had also agreed to build a railway line from Kenya through Uganda to Rwanda.

"It was agreed to revamp the existing railway network and also construct a standard gauge railway line in Kenya and Uganda and also extend it to Rwanda," he said.

The Kenya-Rwanda-Uganda-Tanzania-South Sudan axis is very interesting, always working together for their mutual benefit.

These 2 major oil pipelines and the dams on the White and Blue Nile rivers are going to change the east African scene; there is a lot of potential for all parties for trade.

Kenya and Uganda already have a lot of troops and advisors on the ground as part of AMISOM, Rwanda has already pledged that they might join as well. South Sudan was divided on sending AMISOM troops in 2011 and hasn't made any moves.

Wallahi.
These people don’t know how to run a government or country (Ironic coming from a Somali).

I think they are basing their decisions on emotion rather than logic. The infrastructure exporting Oil/Gas already exists in South Sudan. Their current pipeline goes through Sudan and they pay Sudan for this service. But its already exists, cost effective and works.

Signing on pipeline deal with Kenya is economic suicide. The return on the project will take decades and Kenya cannot be trusted in delivering in its promises. They cannot even provide for their people, why do South Sudanese think they will provide or help them? Also the much hyped Lamu Project is a complete and utter failure.

They need to swallow their pride and continue with the existing arrangement with Sudan. It is in their best interest

The point of the Kenyan pipeline is because of Sudan. They keep interfering in South Sudan's oil exports, stopping them, raising tariffs on them or starting shit like shooting up some workers near the plants. This is smart long term thinking on South Sudan's part because they won't have to deal with that nonsense if they're pumping to friendly Rwanda, Uganda and Kenya. Bantu mafia in the east is making the Arabs irrelevant in Africa :lol:

This is smart Kenya and South Sudan need to closely work together and create a win win

South sudan should ignore the so called Sudanese Arabs , Sudan is the enemy of south sudan , south sudan should never export their oil from port sudan.
They should use Kenya, thats why we have the lamu project.

Good luck to the Dinka brothers

May you succeed

South Sudan won their independence in blood and defeated the much more powerful Sudan again and again. SPLM :up:

The country is in a precarious situation. The president, in a power struggle, just sacked the cabinet. Corruption is rampant. Billions of dollars an unaccounted. Most people live in poverty and lack basic medical care. Also, civil war (not against Sudan) is on the horizon. If you think I'm making this up, just check Google News.

Yeah, terrible how a newly-made country that's been through decades of war and genocide isn't America overnight.

Sudan and South Sudan are both very precarious, it doesn't take a genius to figure that out. That's why there's thousands of Ethiopian troops stationed in both countries.
