Northern Liech State beefs up security at oil fields to resume production
BENTIU (16 Feb.)
Local authorities in South Sudan’s Northern Liech State said they have
boosted security at oil installations to resume output at Tharjiath field
in efforts to restore production to levels achieved before the country
descended into civil war in 2013.
Lam Tungwar, Minister of Information in Northern Liech State, told Radio
Tamazuj yesterday that his government agreed to protect the Unity field to
restart oil production as requested by the National Minister of Petroleum
Ezekiel Lol Gatkuoth during his recent visit to the state.
“After the visit of the minister of petroleum on 4 January, we managed to
complete all preparations for the protection of the oil field in Northern
Liech,” said Tungwar.
Tangwar pointed out that they are waiting for oil companies that will come
to repair damaged oil facilities in the area. “We are now waiting for the
national government to send the companies so that they repair the damaged
facilities during the fighting. So, if this is thing is done, we will
restart the production,” he said.
The local official denied reports that the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) are
participating in the protection of the Unity oil field.
