BMI View: With another production shut-in only narrowly averted, the recently positive diplomatic overtures between Sudan and South Sudan are encouraging but do little to resolve the long - standing tensions that led Juba to secede in 2011. As a result, we retain a cautious and largely bearish view on the long - term outlook for the sector, even though we expect a strong rebound in production in 2014-2015 - notwithstanding elevated political risks. The longer - term outlook is bearish given we expect output from South Sudan's key oil producing blocks to head lower f rom 2017. Despite ambitious plans and the start of small fields in Sudan, the upstream outlook is even more bearish and we expect combined output for both countries to gradually head lower from the latter half of the decade.

The main trends and developments we highlight for Sudan and South Sudan's oil and gas sectors are:

  • Our view that border and security issues could again interrupt the flow of South Sudan's oil to market played out. Only three months after restarting, oil production in Sudan again threatened to close its pipelines to South Sudanese crude which would force another production shut-in. The dispute centred on tensions related to Juba's alleged support for rebel groups. The dispute, although resolved by last minute diplomatic efforts, underscores the precarious and dependence between South Sudan and Sudan. We expect both countries to suffer under another production stoppage, and we are currently watching events play out with a view toward further revising our forecasts downward.

  • We expect combined output to average 220,000 barrels per day (b/d) for 2013, rising to 370,000b/d in 2014 as production continues to recover. However, this number factors in delays and challenges as production rebounds from the shut-in over 2012. Yet the medium- to long-term outlook is less than optimistic, given that much of current production was sourced from ageing fields and the hasty shut...
