South Sudan’s oil revenue has continued to fall in H2 2017 as diversions of crude to pay off arrears to Sudan have increased. The government of South Sudan (GoSS) netted just 15,000 b/d of oil production in H2, down from 22,000 b/d in H1. Overall output was modest but steady, at an average 118,000 b/d in H2, the same as for H1. But almost a third of this output is being diverted to Sudan.The drop in GoSS crude share is down to further increases in cargoes diverted to its northern neighbour.
