S. Sudan Oil Outlook Hinged On Shaky Peace Deal – WoodMac

South Sudan’s optimism about restoring oil output to 350,000 barrels a day depends on the success of a recent peace deal and both are unlikely, according to Wood Mackenzie Ltd.

Crude production fell by about two-thirds to 130,000 barrels per day as blocks were shut-in during a conflict that erupted in late 2013, after a dispute between President Salva Kiir and his former deputy, Riek Machar. The two sides agreed in August to end fighting that claimed tens of thousands of lives.

“We think that the power-sharing accord agreed in August is unlikely to lead to long-term political stability,” Aislinn Clarke, a WoodMac research analyst for sub-Saharan Africa, said in a report. “We do not see a return to pre-2011 production levels without a more realistic and concrete peace deal between the government and rebels.”
