The government of South Sudan announced Feb. 16 that Sudanese forces had three days earlier seized control over two oil blocks in South Sudan’s northeastern state of Upper Nile. Pagan Ammum, South Sudan’s lead negotiator in ongoing talks between the two countries, said he received a notice from the Petrodar consortium, a majority Malaysian-Chinese owned oil company, that Sudan had ordered the company, “unilaterally and by force,” to keep exporting oil to Sudan despite the South Sudanese government’s Jan. 22 order to shut down all oil production in the country.
