Meanwhile, over there: Sudans at risk of oil war

Those of us fixated on Latin America sometimes forget just how stable and calm things are in our neck of the world. I found fascinating this Platt’s report on the possibility of an oil war between Sudan and South Sudan.

A bloody battle over a disputed oil field heads for full-blown conflict between Sudan and South Sudan, just nine months after the former civil foes split … disputed Heglig oilfield … mobilized their populations for war … South Sudan seized the oilfield … estimated production capacity of 60,000 b/d, around half of Sudan’s remaining 115,000 b/d production, making them vital to Sudan’s economy … increased financial crisis due to takeover of Heglig … headlong mobilization …

Enjoy, inasmuch as you can enjoy another war.
