Nile Petroleum Corporation (Nilepet) has entered a number of Joint Ventures with oil service providers in engineering, ICT, drilling, and. road construction
But there is a big opportunity gap in Geology and Geophysics expertise. “We have a number of JVs but we don’t have a JV which is specialized in well logging, mud logging and wireline logging and all that”, declared James Yugusuk, one of the company’s Director Generals. “We also have some potential in waste management and treatment, Yugusuk explained, at a Global E&P conference.
“There are business opportunities in the downstream business and we are constructing four refineries and we have one which is already in progress. All the others we are still looking for investors. We have four refineries in our master plan and we need investors who can join us in doing that.
“We also have strategic storage terminals but currently we have historic facilities but they are not strategic. They are small so we are looking for strategic ones that would be like 15-20Million litres. Again, we are looking at entering business in the aviation sector and we have about four international airports in South Sudan and we want opportunities in Jet A1 fuel provision for depots and all that.
“The last opportunity that we have is in the technical consultancy and we are looking at E&P Consultancy and like I mentioned earlier, we have three operating companies which are currently producing oil and we have a lot of opportunities in E&P Consultancy, G&G studies, field development studies and a number of them”.
