Sudan and Ethiopia agree to establish joint oil pipeline

Sudan and Ethiopia agreed on Friday to establish a joint oil pipeline, to serve the two countries.

This came during a meeting held by Sudanese Minister of Energy and Mining Adel Mohamed Ibrahim, with his Ethiopian counterpart, Seleshi Bekele, in the capital Addis Ababa, as part of an official visit by Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok and a number of his ministers to Ethiopia.

According to the official Sudan News Agency (SUNA), Ibrahim explained that Khartoum and Addis Ababa will invite Juba to “co-establish another branch of the pipeline to extend it to reach the State of South Sudan for the benefit of the people of the region.”

“The Ethiopian side is very interested and enthusiastic about this project, and we will start to implement it soon after the completion of partnership procedures,” Ibrahim added.

He continued “the Ethiopian side also presented a second project, a partnership in the Sudanese Nile Petroleum Co. Ltd., and Ethiopia will present a written proposal on this partnership.”

Ibrahim also pointed out that “the meeting also discussed the project of the expansion of Port Sudan (eastern Sudan) so as to accommodate a number of ships and gas and gasoline tankers.”

The meeting also discussed “technical cooperation between Sudan and Ethiopia in oil exploration, development and information and training center.”

In the framework of the same visit, Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed stressed his country’s support to Sudan in all regional and international events, to remove its name from the State Sponsors of Terrorism list.
