Prequalification for environmental audit of South Sudan oilfields extended

Published by

On 9 January, 2020, the Government of the Republic of South Sudan announced a tender for a comprehensive environmental audit of all the country’s producing oilfields. The Ministry of Petroleum made prequalification documents available to interested companies from its Juba headquarters, and its website.

Due to the amount of interest, and requests from some companies to extend the deadline, the Ministry’s Environmental Tender Audit Committee has announced an extension to the deadline to submit documentation to 16 00 on 27 January 2020.

The Petroleum Act of 2012, which governs the oil sector in South Sudan, aims to improve management of the environmental impact of the sector after years of neglect prior to independence.

An international independent organisation will be appointed to conduct the audit, suggest best practices for new exploration, and propose methods to repair historical environmental damage in South Sudan.
