(in East Africa)



AREA (on): 2,505,800 km2

OIL PEAK: 2012 (forecast)


Sudan began producing oil in 1993 from the Melut basin in the centre of the country. New discoveries and developments have led to increasing output from this region and it is forecast that oil production will grow steadily to a peak around 2014.

Sudan produces no gas although production may begin by 2016. It has no offshore potential.



Oil consumption in Sudan has been rather erratic owing to the political problems in the country but after 2009 is expected to grow strongly as indigenous output builds.

Exports of oil from Port Sudan on the Red Sea, which surpassed imports in 1999, are growing rapidly and will reach a plateau by 2014.

Sudan consumes no gas although it may begin so in 2016.
