Sudan to ship 400 000 barrels of new crude – source

Sudan will export its first crude cargo from the 40 000 barrel-per-day (bpd) Thar Jath oilfield, totalling 400 000 barrels from end-August, an industry source said on Monday.

The African country’s newest oilfield began production in June and is pumping heavy sweet crude, the source added.

“It’s scheduled for first lifting from the marine terminal at Port Sudan at the end of this month,” the source said. The destination was not immediately known.
