Sudan: November 30, 2002


Oil revenues, which only began with the first oil shipments in 1999, now account for 41 percent of government income. In the first nine months of 2002, the government received $527 million in oil revenue. The oil fields, which could hold as much as three billion barrels, are now pumping 250,000 barrels a day. This is to increase to 450,000 barrels by 2005. A major reason the government is making peace is because the rebels are threatening the oil fields, and all the riches the oil can provide.
