Shipments of South Sudanese oil from Sudan have resumed after resolution of a year-long fee dispute, a senior petroleum ministry official said Thursday, despite uncertainty after President Omar al-Bashir ordered the oil flow stopped.
"The first shipment already left" from the Port Sudan terminal, Awad Elkarim Mohammed, undersecretary at the oil ministry, told AFP.
The load departed around June 21 but Mohammed said he was not sure who bought it.
"It is exported from South Sudan's oil field," he said.
