Nile Petroleum Corporation (NILEPET) Ltd was established in 2003 under the Civil Authority for New Sudan (CANS) to link the oil companies with Civil Authority for New Sudan and the then civil government in the liberated areas of Southern Sudan.

After the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) of 2005, the Ministry of Petroleum remained as a regulatory authority and NILEPET continued as a commercial entity representing the government interest in all consortiums in the Oil sector.
