It's Back

Returning for its seventh edition, South Sudan Oil & Power (SSOP) serves as the nation’s official energy event, organized in official partnership with the Ministry of Petroleum and the Ministry of Mining. This year’s theme — Next Generation in Energy — shines a spotlight on the people behind South Sudan’s energy industry and explores the next generation of energy entrepreneurs, training and development, youth in resources, and community involvement in projects.

For the first time in its eight-year history, SSOP has expanded to four days to include a human resources-driven agenda, dedicated energy program and concurrent South Sudan Mining Forum, workshops for youth in energy and mining, and an interactive exhibition, inviting investors to explore and engage with opportunities across upstream, refining, power generation and distribution, mining and renewables industries.

Why South Sudan?

Untapped
Hydrocarbon Reserves

Despite holding 3.5 billion barrels of proven oil reserves – the third-largest in sub-Saharan Africa – nearly 90% of South Sudan’s oil and gas reserves remain untapped. The country has ambitions to triple its current production, reaching 230,000 barrels per day (bpd) in the short term and 450,000 bpd in the long term.

Growing
Workforce

With over 80% of South Sudan’s oil and gas workforce being local, the country presents significant opportunities for training, up-skilling and re-skilling the national workforce, along with accelerating the procurement of South Sudanese goods, services, materials, equipment and personnel.

Mid- and Downstream
Infrastructure

South Sudan is seeking to construct new pipeline infrastructure to facilitate oil exports and reduce dependence on neighboring Sudan, as well as expand refining capacity in Unity and Upper Nile States – with the construction of four new refineries planned by the decade’s end.

Frontier Mining Market

Comprehensive geo-mapping is currently underway to identify South Sudan’s exact critical mineral reserves quantities, with a view to granting mining concessions in the near future.

Renewable Potential

Aligning with the global energy transition, South Sudan has substantial renewable energy generation and interconnection potential, including hydropower due to its proximity to the Nile River and solar power, benefitting from eight hours of daily sunshine.

Regional Advantage

As the sole crude oil producer in the region, South Sudan holds a strategic link among the Middle East, East and Central Africa, spearheading the development of cross-border transport corridors and recently signing MOUs with Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania to enhance regional connectivity.
