The Ministry of Oil has announced the arrival of a technical delegation from US oil and gas company Baker Hughes (BHGE) to arrange for the implementation of the gas cooperation agreement signed between the Sudan and US during the International Petroleum Conference in the UAE.
The company’s delegation completed the technical study to start producing gas associated with oil and natural gas.
Oil and gas minister Abdul Rahman Othman said on Monday that the gas is a priority for the state to achieve increased production of electricity from gas associated with oil in a number of wells, in addition to gas discoveries in a number of areas.
He pointed out to the need to develop a time-bound operational program of action to extract and develop the gas program.
The US Company signed a memorandum of understanding with Gas Exploration Company last month.
