The National Courier has managed to obtain, the minutes and the communique of the negotiations between the government of South Sudan and Sudan.

During the negotiations South Sudan agreed to pay for damages to Panthou Oilfield as a result of the war of 2012 based on a report by the Northerners.

Other points of negotiations indicated that South Sudan will have access only to metering stations and all other facilities that monitor the amount of oil taken from the ground but any “issues” with metering are to be tackled only by Sudan. It is not clear whether South Sudan will be able to verified the meter readings whether they are correct or altered.

The negotiations also outlined the timetable for resumption of the oil. The negotiations were led by Ezekiel Lol Gatkuoth and Mayen Wol Jong.
