Thursday, March 28, 2019

Sudan’s oil minister, Isaac Adam Bashir, met with officials from CNPC, ONGC, and Petronas to explore the possibilities of joint cooperation in exploration. The government’s plan is to organize these three companies in a consortium to explore and develop new exploration blocks to increase its oil supply.

At the meeting, Minister Bashir said he is fully aware of the challenges faced by oil companies operating in Sudan and vowed to eliminate these obstacles. Among the issues addressed by Bashir was security, he did not say how this would be addressed, however.
