South Sudan oil output down 37 pct in May vs Dec

25 May 2014, 07:59

Juba - South Sudan's oil production was 155,000 barrels per day (bpd) in May, down 37 percent compared with December before fighting erupted, the oil minister said on Saturday.

"The output is 155,000 barrels per day. This is compared to 245,000 barrels per day in December 2013," Petroleum Minister Stephen Dhieu Dau told Reuters by telephone.

Dau said all the oil was being pumped from Paloch - the site of an oil complex and crude oil processing facility in the north of the country near the border with Sudan, which hosts the sole pipeline export route.

In March, South Sudan's oil production was 160,000 bpd.
