Repair of South Sudan's Oil Pipeline to Port Sudan

 The Arab Weekly published on 29 May 2024 an article titled "Repaired Sudan Oil Pipeline, a Key Source of Revenue for Juba, to Resume Operation."

Oil provides 90 percent of South Sudan's foreign exchange earnings.  One of its two pipelines, which carries two-thirds of its total oil exports, has been out of service since February due to the civil war in Sudan.  The rupture of the Chinese-Malaysian pipeline has been repaired and oil can flow again once the waxy crude has been flushed through the line.
