South Sudan sees oil production reaching 200,000 barrels per day by 2021

CAPE TOWN, Oct 9 (Reuters) - South Sudan’s oil production has reached 178,000 barrels per day (bpd), the oil ministry said on Wednesday, and the country aims for output to reach 200,000 barrels per day within the next two years.

“We are working on increasing the production of oil,” said Arkangelo Okwang Oler, Director-General for planning, training and research at South Sudan’s oil ministry, speaking at an oil conference in Cape Town.

South Sudan is expected to launch an oil and gas licensing round at the conference on Thursday. (Reporting by Helen Reid and Wendell Roelf, Editing by Louise Heavens)
